Opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) on Monday responded to Wikileaks documents that were released Sunday night, saying that "it is now publicly clear that the Arab states are included in the understanding of the Iranian threat."

Speaking before a meeting with German President Christian Wulff, Livni said "it is even more obvious now that there is a common interest to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

The Kadima leader said "this conflict is being used by the Iranians, and 2011 is a year of opportunity to end this conflict."

"Allies need to conduct a dialogue between themselves that allows for an open discourse on strategic issues.This can not change," Livni said. "The international community needs to find a system that will allow states to establish this discourse, even if there are no dramatic surprises within the documents that were released."

"Even the issues that related to me do not point out anything that has not already been said in public," she added.

"The year 2007 was characterized by the strengthening of Hamas and therefore the chance of reaching an agreement was low, in 2008 we initiated the peace process in order to change the face of the situation and in 2010 I say again - a peace agreement is possible and it needs to done," the opposition leader stressed.
