Netanyahu, Livni meet after months of silence
Prime minister, opposition chairwoman hold first routine update session since April. 'Only political process can prevent September storm,' Livni slams Netanyahu

Cold shoulder over? Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Opposition Chairwoman Tzipi Livni held an official update session on Monday – the first in since April.

 

Legally, the prime minister and the opposition leader are expected to meet on a monthly basis, but Livni and Netanyahu have been avoiding scheduling such a tête-à-tête for the past several months.

 

During their meeting, Netanyahu and his military adviser Major-General Yohanan Locker updated Livni on military and security issues, including the recent terror attack in southern Israel.

 

"Only a political process can prevent a storm in September and allow Israel to act against terrorism," the opposition chairwoman told Netanyahu during the meeting. "The lack of a political process has harmed Israel's capability to defend itself," she added.

 

Last week, Livni met with Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman for a regular update on foreign and diplomatic affairs.
