Minister of Defense Lieberman: No chance for a bilateral agreement with Palestinians

Minister of Defense, Avigdor Lieberman, met this morning in Jerusalem with General David Petraeus in Jerusalem. The two discussed Israel-US relations and the mutual determination to strengthen them in the Trump era. The two also discussed security challenges, both regional and global, faced by the two countries.


The Foreign Minister noted that what is most needed now in terms of the US role in the region is the establishment of the Anti-Terrorism

Coalition to include the moderate Arab states and Israel in fight against radical Islamic terror. Lieberman said that the success of such a coalition will serve as a basis for reaching a comprehensive regional settlement between Israel and the Arab states, to include the solution of the Palestinian issue within the framework of an exchange of territory and populations.


Lieberman stressed that there is no possibility of a bilateral agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. He said such an arrangement has been tried and failed several times in the past 24 years and resolving conflict will come only as part of a comprehensive regional settlement.
