Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid voiced his support for resuming peace talks with the Palestinians in excerpts of a Time magazine interview released Thursday, stating that "you make peace with foes, not with friends."

"Israelis convinced themselves that there is no use in talking to the Palestinians because they’re not to be trusted. I think they’re wrong. I think the Palestinians are not to be trusted and this is exactly why we should talk to them," Lapid said in the interview.

Lapid referred to the failure to resume negotiations for a two-state solution as "irresponsible," and "shortsighted," stating that "my father didn’t come here from the ghetto in order to live in a country that is half Arab, half Jewish. He came here to live in a Jewish state."
