Lieberman: I Hope Morsi Comes to Visit

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday that he looks forward to a visit from Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. Lieberman’s comments followed Morsi’s statement earlier in the day expressing commitment to peace between the two countries.

“Peace must be expressed,” Lieberman said, speaking at a legal conference in Tel Aviv. “That’s why I hope to see President Morsi inviting official Israeli representatives, visiting Jerusalem as a guest of President Peres, and being interviewed by the Israeli media.”
