Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman emphasized his opposition on Sunday to unilaterally dismantling illegal outposts in the West Bank, and said rather that such a move should be part of the greater peace process which inevitably would require equivalent action from the Palestinians. "One needs to understand that a return to the '67 borders with today's circumstances won't end the conflict and won't bring security and peace, but rather will transfer the conflict to within the '67 borders," he said prior to the weekly cabinet meeting. "This cannot be an individual initiative," Lieberman continued. "There is no point in unveiling another plan, the correct outline is the Road Map, in stages." "Even if we will need to evacuate this outpost or another, we will do this, but this must be part of a bigger picture," he said.
