Livni: Arab League must show flexibility

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said on Thursday that the Arab League must show flexibility, and called on Arab League nations to support Israeli proposals and thereby make things easier for the Palestinians. "The subject of the Palestinians must and can make progress in a two-sided track," she said during a meeting with US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, adding that "Israel, for its part, is of course open to dialogue." Livni also addressed the issue of Iran, saying that if the international community did not show determination on the Iranian nuclear threat, those threatened by Teheran will see this as weakness and will try to appease the Iranians.
