Opposition leader Tzipi Livni met with French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Paris on Thursday. The discussion centered on regional issues including negotiations with the Palestinians, and the Iranian nuclear threat. At the beginning of the meeting, Livni expressed opposition to a draft resolution put forward by Sweden that would recognize east Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. She told Sarkozy that it was not up to Europe to "take sides" on the matter of Jerusalem, and called on France to speak up against the draft. Regarding Iran, Livni thanked the French president for his country's stance on the matter. She said that the time has come for fiercer and more meaningful sanctions against Teheran. Livni also said that within Israel, the coalition and the opposition are in agreement on the issue of Iran. On negotiations with the Palestinians, the opposition leader told Sarkozy that Israel wants to come to an agreement as soon as possible. She said that Israel seeks "two states for two peoples," while simultaneously safeguarding its national and security interests.
