United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman Wednesday, discussing political and economic issues on both a regional and global level. During the meeting, Lieberman thanked Ban for his "unequivocal" stance against recent unilateral Palestinian maneuvers at the UN. The foreign minister added that the PA is not interested in advancing peace negotiations, but rather seeks to sabotage them in an attempt to justify further unilateral actions at the United Nations.

Addressing the threat posed by Tehran to Middle Eastern stability, Lieberman warned Ban that Iran could attempt to take control of Iraq, thereby creating a regional alliance consisting of Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. This, he said, would endanger regional security and would pose a particular threat to both Israel and Jordan.

Earlier Wednesday, Ban met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres. He is also scheduled to meet with Defense Minister Ehud Barak and opposition leader Tzipi Livni before concluding his trip.
