Following Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's announcement on Thursday evening of his intention to withdraw his candidacy from the January 2010 presidential elections, Defense Minister Ehud Barak issued a statement in which he expressed hope that despite the declaration, the efforts to commence in negotiations and reach a peace deal essential to Israel's safety and the future of the entire area would not be hampered. Barak stressed the importance of both sides' adherence to the principle of promoting negotiations toward an arrangement. The defense minister reiterated his support of exhausting every effort to reach a two-state solution, while safeguarding Israel's security interests.
