Turkish PM calls Lieberman ‘Israel’s chief problem’
Lieberman said that while Israel has taken steps to facilitate peace with the Palestinians, the PA continues to "commemorate terrorists by naming streets and squares after them in their cities."
While meeting with visiting French Foreign Minister Michèle
Alliot-Marie, Lieberman said that the current unbalanced situation
cannot be allowed to continue.
Lieberman stated that the Foreign Ministry is preparing a report
detailing Israeli and Palestinian activities since the current
government was formed. The report is meant to show the large gaps in
what the two sides have done to facilitate peace.
Earlier on Thursday, Allot-Marie met with President Shimon Peres
was scheduled to meet with Defense Minister Ehud Barak in Tel Aviv later
in the day. The two were expected to discuss renewing peace talks and
other regional issues.
