Opposition leader and Kadima chair Tzipi Livni met on Wednesday with French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner in Jerusalem, and stressed that construction in Gilo needn't be halted.
"The Israeli consensus is that Gilo is part of Israel, and that understanding is important for every discussion on the final borders of any future agreement," she told him.
The two also discussed Iran's nuclear aspirations, and Livni called on the world to take decisive actions.
"It is time for harsh sanctions on Iran. The international community should be clear about it. Every dialogue should have a time framework," said Livni.
