Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with opposition leader Tzipi Livni at his Jerusalem office on Monday afternoon and updated her about security matters. It was the first meeting between the two since April, even though the prime minister is legally required to brief the opposition head every month.
"Only a diplomatic process can prevent [the Palestinian statehood bid at the UN General Assembly in] September and also enable Israel to fight terror," Livni said. "The lack of a diplomatic process has harmed Israel and its ability to defend itself."
