Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Liberman met this evening (20 October) in Jerusalem with Javier Solana, High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union. They discussed issues relating to the situation in the Middle East, including Iran, Lebanon and the Palestinians.

Foreign Minister Liberman said that the continuation of the processes in the spirit of the decision of the Human Rights Council in Geneva will endanger the Middle East peace process and to the chance of renewing negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The policy of subversion carried out by the Palestinian Authority against the State of Israel, which follows decisions taken at the Fatah conference last August, such as article 19 – which states that "Armed struggle is a strategy, not a tactic. The armed revolution of the Arab Palestinian people is a crucial element in the battle for liberation and for the elimination of the Zionist presence. This struggle will not stop until the Zionist entity is eliminated and Palestine is liberated." – raises serious questions about the real aims of the Palestinians.

The question now is whether the Palestinians want to establish a state, or to destroy the state of Israel, Lieberman said.
