Livni: PM must renew talks to get world behind Israel

September 23, 2011 20:18

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Friday said that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas had clearly enlisted world opinion behind his cause to the detriment of Israel's international standing.

Following Abbas's speech to the UN General Assembly in which he confirmed that he had submitted a request for UN recognition of a Palestinian state, Livni told Channel 2 that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu must now work to get world opinion behind Israel.

Livni said that Netanyahu must work to renew negotiations and not merely speak at the United Nations in order to advance Israel's interests.
