FM Lieberman: The Palestinians refuse to sign peace

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman: "We didn't see any peace from Gaza after we withdrew, [and] no peace from Lebanon." Addressomg the Saban Forum in Washington Friday,he said: "With settlements, we try not to provoke, but we have the right to define our capital, and settlement construction is part of our security. Settlements aren't an obstacle to peace, the opposite is true," he said.  “We are ready to sacrifice for peace but not commit suicide,” said Lieberman. Standing by his objection to Mahmoud Abbas as a peace partner, he said,  “We need a comprehensive solution with the Palestinians, but it's up to the Palestinians… I saw Olmert's proposal in Annapolis, and Abbas refused to sign it.”
