Danon: Livni Should be Dismissed as Chief Negotiator


Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon (Likud) on Sunday called for Justice Minister Tzipi Livni to be dismissed from her role as negotiator with the Palestinian Authority (PA), in the wake of her meeting with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in London last week.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Danon said that Livni’s meeting with Abbas, after she voted in favor of suspending peace talks because of the Hamas-Fatah unity pact, dealt a serious blow to Israel’s diplomatic efforts.
