Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Liberman talked with members of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations about the crossing points between Israel and the Gaza Strip. At the meeting, which took place in New York, the foreign minister said that maintaining calm in Gaza is first and foremost in the interest of Egypt, and that there is very good cooperation between the Israeli and Egyptian security forces.

FM Liberman said that it is a mistake to think that it is possible to change Turkey’s position vis-à-vis Israel simply with more effort or gestures. What is involved is a strategic change in the Turkish leadership generated by values deeply ingrained in Turkish society. Liberman said that he hopes to see really tough resolution against Iran at the Security Council discussion tomorrow (Wednesday June 9), but apparently the situation is a little different. He added that this is a problem of the entire international community and that the situation has already had a dramatic impact on the Gulf States.
