Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday evening said it was Israel's responsibility to strive for peace and work together with the US to resume negotiations with the Palestinians. "Today we have a sovereign, strong, nurtured and blossoming state, stronger than all of its shortcomings. Our highest responsibility is to strive for peace," Barak said at a ceremony in Tel Aviv. "Firstly, we must work with the American government to reach understandings regarding the resumption of peace talks as soon as possible. Even under imperfect circumstances, and even if difficult decisions must be made. This is the essence of our political responsibility," said the defense minister.
