Israeli Pres. Rivlin: French plan seeks peace talks 'for negotiations' sake’

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Wednesday told members of the European Parliament that international efforts to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement — including the most recent French initiative — were “negotiations for negotiations’ sake,” and therefore doomed to fail.

His criticism of Paris’s efforts to bring Israel and the Palestinians back to the negotiating table joined a growing chorus of scorn from senior Israeli officials. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu derided the French proposal, and a senior Israeli official said the EU’s efforts smacked of colonialism.

“The French initiative suffers from fundamental faults. The attempt to return to negotiations for negotiations’ sake, not only does not bring us near the long-awaited solution, but rather drags us further away from it,” the head of state said in an address in Brussels. [ Source ]
