Liberman: Talking of peace now is like digging foundations for a building in the midst of an earthquake

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Friday that talking of a peace accord with the Palestinians while "the Middle East is burning" is "like trying to dig foundations for a building in the midst of an earthquake."
Speaking at a conference in Eilat, Liberman said the time is not ripe at the moment for a diplomatic accord, because there is no real backing from the Arab world for that.
Touching on the issue of the Iranian threat, the foreign minister said world powers must not recognize Iran's "right to enrich" uranium.
"As soon as the world recognize Iran's 'right to enrich uranium,' all of the countries in the Middle East will also talk about their 'right to enrich uranium,' and at that moment, a crazy nuclear arms race will begin."
