Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that the Palestinian unilateral move at the United Nations would not be helpful to either Israelis or Palestinians, and said Israel viewed negotiations as the only way to achieve peace.

Speaking with the BBC, Barak said that Israel must remain strong and "open-eyed" in the face of regional changes, and that the recent so-called Arab Spring has shown the world how different Israel is than it's neighbors.
