Livni: Peres Acted Responsibly

Chairwoman Tzipi Livni of the Hatenu'ah party reacted, Sunday, to President Shim'on Peres's call for a return to talks with the Palestinian Authority as soon as possible by saying that Peres, "acted with the necessary responsibility and told the public the truth about the condition and status of Israel. That's how all people should act, to whom Israel is important, and certainly the president."

Referring to Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu, Livni said, "Netanyahu must immediately stop the bullying and insolent attack of the Likud on the president of the state. Those who attack the president today don't do a tenth of what he does for the security of Israel and only isolate it and harm its security."
