Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman offered his support for what he described as Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's complex meetings in Washington DC. "[Netanyahu] is representing Israeli society, not the press," Lieberman said. "There is no need to turn every dispute into [a] drama. Not everything is an apocalypse."

According to the foreign minister, the United States and Israel have more in common than what they have disagreements.

Addressing the talk that has been surrounding US President Barack Obama's two major speeches in the past week, Lieberman said, "Israel is ready for peace negotiations at any moment with no preconditions."

The foreign minister also discussed some Palestinian demand. "I hear the mantra of the right of return. Anyone who talks of the right of return means destroying Israel," he said.

"There won't be negotiations on the right of return, not even for one refugee," Lieberman added. "The Palestinians can raise it but we won't accept even one."

The foreign minister wished Netanyahu success on the rest of his United States visit.
