Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning (Sunday, 15 January 2017), at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting, made the following remarks:
“The conference convening in Paris today is a useless conference. It is being coordinated between the French and the Palestinians. Its goal is to try and force terms on Israel that conflict with our national needs. Of course it pushes peace further away because it hardens the Palestinian positions and it also pushes them away from direct negotiations without preconditions.
I must say that this conference is among the last twitches of yesterday’s world. Tomorrow’s world will be different – and it is very near.”
