Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon met today (Monday, 1 March 2010) with the Deputy Foreign Minister of Panama, Mr. Meliton Arrocha at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem. The two men discussed political and security issues. Deputy FM Ayalon thanked his counterpart for Panama’s resolute opposition to the Goldstone Report and for its stance against the Report during the debate in the UN Security Council.
"I am glad Panama voted with the moral majority at the UN. The Goldstone Report is immoral and abolishes the right of a democratic country to protect its citizens," Ayalon stated.
DFM Ayalon also expressed his extreme concern over the Iranian penetration into Latin America. "Iran is a threat not only to Israel, but to the entire world," he said.
