Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Tzipi Livni met this morning (21 July) with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Livni briefed the British prime minister on the background and status of the peace process. They also discussed Iran and Britain’s determined efforts to impose sanctions on Iran.

The two ministers talked about the indictments issued in Britain against senior members of the Israeli security forces. FM Livni stated, "IDF commanders operate according to moral values and orders that sometimes limit us in our counterterrorism endeavors. The situation in which these commanders are exposed to indictments by interested parties in countries which are under the same threats as Israel creates a lot of frustration. The necessary amendments to the law must be introduced as soon as possible in order to prevent submission of these indictments."
