Livni supports PM's bid to release 250 prisoners

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Tuesday that she supported Prime Minister Olmert's bid to release 250 Palestinian prisoners; Fatah members "without blood on their hands," Israel Radio reported. "The distinction between extremists and moderates is clear-cut and will be expressed not only towards Abbas as chairman but also in working ties with the new PA government," Livni said following a meeting with the foreign minister of Australia. The foreign minister remarked that Hamas clearly wanted to cruelly capitalize on the pain of the Schalit family and the entire nation to dictate its agenda and sabotage the four-way summit in Sharm e-Sheikh.
