Lieberman Pleased With EU Decision

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday that he was pleased with the EU's decision mot to accept the Swedish proposal to declare eastern Jerusalem the capital of a nonexistent Palestinian state.

Lieberman said that Israel appreciates the efforts of the countries that worked to hammer out a final version of the resolution and prevented an adoption of radical Arab positions, which would have further hurt chances to restart negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.
