Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Lieberman was scheduled to leave Israel Thursday to attend the conference of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), which is being held in Kazakhstan.

Lieberman will be meeting with several foreign ministers, including those of Germany, Canada, Greece, Poland, and the Ukraine. He will brief his counterparts on the outcome of the recent meetings between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington D.C.

He will also give the ministers an update on negotiations with the Palestinian Authority and discuss other matters on the international and regional agenda.

The conference will be attended by foreign ministers and high-level representatives from the 56 OSCE participating states.

Lieberman's spokespeople said that he would also present the government's “new policy” regarding Gaza, including plans for the establishment of new projects and additional easing of restrictions “aimed at improving the conditions of Gaza residents.” It was not clear what projects Lieberman's statement was referring to.

Israel is not in direct contact with Gaza's leaders, who are members of the Hamas terrorist group that wants Israel eradicated and has been holding IDF soldier Gilad Shalit incommunicado for the last four years.
