Pollard Demonstration Outside Clinton-Lieberman Meeting

Dozens of demonstrators gathered outside the Foreign Ministry, Monday morning, as Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of the United States. The demonstrators were demanding the release of Jonathan Pollard, who was arrested in 1985 and sentenced to life for passing classified information to Israel.

Clinton is also scheduled to meet with President Shim'on Peres, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. On the agenda are relations between Israel and Egypt, following the election of Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi as president; the Iranian nuclear threat; the bloodshed in Syria; and diplomatic impasse between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
