Livni: Only a real Israeli initiative can take foreign ones off the table

Livni Only a real Israe

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Monday criticized a Swedish proposal that the European Union declare Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. Speaking at a Kadima faction meeting, Livni said, "Only a genuine Israeli initiative, consisting of an historic agreement, would take foreign initiatives off the table." She added, "A year ago, I conducted negotiations, and we stood for the interests of the State of Israel. The moment that the aim is to satisfy US interests, the result is obviously that a historic decision won't be made."
