Opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that Israel's current position is extremely problematic because the country's main focus should be the renewed peace talks with the Palestinians and avoiding the failure of the negotiations. Livni made the comments in a Monday evening telephone conversation with the prime minister.

"You must make the necessary decisions that will assure continued peace talks and Kadima will support every choice you make towards fulfilling that goal," said Livni.

Livni added that she has avoided publicly criticizing the prime minister's decisions lately and her party will continue in this policy so that negotiations with the Palestinians will have the best chance of succeeding.

She emphasized that if Netanyahu will make decisions that will lead to the failure of the talks, Kadima will be disappointed and will react accordingly.

"Kadima will continue to allow the prime minister to make the correct decisions which will facilitate the negotiations and will oppose any moves that will hurt the success of the talks."
