Livni: Terrorist Release Depends on Abbas

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, Israel’s chief negotiator with the Palestinian Authority (PA), said on Tuesday that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s behavior will determine whether Israel goes through with the release of the fourth batch of terrorists that it agreed to release.

Livni, who spoke at a conference and was quoted by AFP, made the comments after a senior diplomatic source said earlier Tuesday that if it turns out that talks with PA have reached a dead end, Israel will reconsider the terrorist release.
