Netanyahu: Peace policy to be set within weeks

Posted by valecardia su 5 aprile, 2009


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday opened his new coalition’s inaugural weekly cabinet session in Jerusalem by declaring that the next weeks would be dedicated to setting a policy for the advancement of the peace process.

“Today, we will establish a political-security cabinet and in the coming weeks we will complete the formulation of our policy to advance peace and security,” Netanyahu told the 30 ministers and seven deputy ministers gathered for the first cabinet session in Jerusalem.

The premier’s comments came amid fears that his right-leaning government would stem any progress reached by former prime minister Ehud Olmert’s administration in peace talks with the Palestinians and Syria.

“This government is a genuine unity government,” he added. “It was created out of a sense of deep responsibility concerning the need to deal with the urgent security, economic and social challenges that Israel faces. And so with that, we set to work.”

The prime minister told the cabinet that he planned to annul the previous government’s decision to create an Israeli ‘White House’ with the hopes of reaching a more “modest proposal” for the premier’s residence.

Ministers were also to vote on a number of ministerial panels during Sunday’s meeting.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu promised ministers that over the coming days he would appoint a chairman of the health ministry, following the ire raised over the lack of a Health Minister appointed to the new government.
