Livni to pursue peace talks

October 06, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, in her first policy address since being nominated to form Israel's next government, voiced her commitment to press ahead with peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

"Let us not allow dates or political changes to stand in our way," she said in an address at a policy conference at the Foreign Ministry also attended by Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad Maliki.

"We are waiting to see who will be the next president, Obama versus McCain, and believe me there is a big difference between the two vis-a-vis . . . the Middle East peace process," Maliki said.
