Speaking at a Labor faction meeting prior to the opening of the Knesset's winter session on Monday, Labor Party Chairman and Defense Minister Amir Peretz said that along with diplomatic issues, Labor would focus more on social issues. Referring to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's convergence plan, the defense minister said that his party has never held the view that unilateral steps were the best way to bring about peace with the Palestinians. Peretz said that negotiations were always preferable to unilateral steps, and that a military option could not bring about a solution to the Palestinian issue.
