Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Tuesday said that Syria announcing they are interested in reaching a peace agreement with Israel is not enough.
"Syria is signaling a willingness to come closer to the West, but that's not enough," Livni said at a conference at the Diaspora Museum in Tel Aviv. "Syria needs to make a more serious decision than just stating that it is interested in a peace agreement with Israel. Peace isn't eating Humous in Damascus, it's changing the geo-political situation in the region," she added.
Livni said that Syria had joined the coalition of extreme Islamists to advance its interests, not because of any ideological connection to its beliefs.
