Lieberman and Austrian FM discuss Middle East, Goldstone and Iran

Lieberman and Austrian F

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman met with his Austrian counterpart, Michael Spindelegger, on Wednesday afternoon. The two discussed issues including the Goldstone Report, the Middle East peace process, the settlement issue and the possibility that Austrian companies were doing business with Teheran. During the meeting, Lieberman stressed that endorsement of the Goldstone Report would in effect grant immunity to terror. In response, Spindelegger reiterated Vienna's position that the report should not be debated outside the UN Human Rights Council. Matters discussed in the meeting took on a new significance in the context of Austria's impending Security Council presidency.
