In response to the Foreign Policy
report in which US Secretary of State John Kerry is quoted as telling European diplomats that Washington is stalling Palestinian moves at the UN on the advice of Tzipi Livni and Shimon Peres, the joint Labor-Hatnua campaign released a statement touting their "consistent position in opposition to any Palestinian attempt to impose on Israel a new set of circumstances unilaterally."
"Livni is proud that she has succeeded in protecting Israel's vital interests in the Security Council," the statement read."It is possible to protect Israel's security interests with proper diplomatic policies, something that could happen only if [Labor chief Isaac] Herzog and Livni will form the next government," the statement read.
"Herzog and Livni will continue to act and wield their influence on the international stage in order to advance the State of Israel's security and diplomatic interests."
