Livni: We want an agreement, but not at all cost

In a conference held by the Institute for National Security Studies, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who is in charge of negotiations with the Palestinians, said: "We want to reach an agreement, but not at all cost." She added that "the possibility for the Palestinians

to have a real state goes through the negotiation room and not in the UN."

 

The minister also commented on the International Holocaust Remembrance Day that is being marked today: "Israel was not founded because of the Holocaust but rather because of Zionism, our connection to the homeland and the Jewish people's right for self definition." (Attila Somfalvi and Gilad Morag)
