Edelstein Meets With SA VP


Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein on Sunday morning met with South African Vice President Kgalema Motlanthe in Johannesburg. During the meeting, Edelstein raised the issue of the PA's plan to secure recognition for an Arab state in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, and asked South Africa not to support the bid, saying that it would be the “last nail in the coffin” in relations between Israel and the PA.

Motlanthe said that both sides needed to set specific goals and discuss ways to reach them.
