Lieberman: Obama wants a better world

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman praised US President Barack Obama's "important speech" on Thursday in Cairo, saying it was built upon the principles of justice, progress and democracy, as well as a vision of a better world.


"This speech is highly significant because President Obama sees the Road Map and its first stage – the cessation of violence – as a critical step towards a final agreement. As the president says, the connection between the US and Israel is a strong and unbreakable one that will maintain despite times of legitimate disagreement," he said. (Attila Somfalvi)
