Livni: Israel Can't Accept Arab Peace Plan in Current Form

In first interview to Palestinian media, foreign minister says new PA government must meet Quartet's three demands.

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told a Palestinian newspaper in an interview published Thursday that Israel could not accept a 2002 Arab League peace initiative in its current formulation.

In her first interview to the Palestinian media, Livni told Al-Ayyam that Israel's stance on the new Palestinian unity government would demand on its diplomatic plan, and the extent to which it meets the three demands of the international community, namely, recognize Israel, renounce violence and abide by previously signed peace agreements.

"We are demanding that the government meet these three conditions," she stressed.
