On a tour of Jerusalem suburb Ma'ale Adumim on Sunday, a municipality that falls on the eastern side of the 1967 Green Line, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said, "the demand on Israel to withdraw to the '67 lines is an attempt to predetermine results of negotiations."

"In addition to [our] historical right, these lines are not defensible, the current reality on the ground does not permit" such a withdrawal, he said while overlooking the city. The conflict, Ayalon added, "is not and has never been about territory, so basing the negotiations on territory or borders will not solve the conflict."
