Lieberman: EU peace initiative distorts priorities

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Army Radio Tuesday that efforts from the European Union to revive Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in the lead-up to September were unhelpful and placed emphasis on the wrong priorities.
"You cannot compare what's happening in the Arab world to what's happening here," Lieberman said, adding that it would be more useful for the EU to put Syria and Yemen at the top of their agenda.
