Landing in Britain Thursday morning, opposition leader Tzipi Livni became the first senior Israeli official to visit Britain since the controversial universal jurisdiction law, used by activists to obtain arrest warrants for alleged war crimes, was changed.

"We are not talking about a personal matter, but an issue that has clouded relations between our countries for years, and Britain has done well in ending it," Livni said in a meeting with British Foreign Minister William Hague.

In her meetings, Livni also discussed Palestinian diplomatic efforts at the UN and
thanked Britain for its help fighting Iran's nuclear program.
