A final status arrangement with the Palestinians cannot be reached in the near future, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Monday during a meeting with Quartet Middle East emissary Tony Blair. "It will not be possible to reach an arrangement on final borders within nine months, nor a complete final status arrangement within two years," said the foreign minister. "This is an unrealistic date." Lieberman suggested that the two sides "begin direct talks without committing to any target date."
