Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday 17 Teves made reference to the opening of the French-hosted regional summit; labeling it “useless”. Mr. Netanyahu made his comments at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting in the presence of the media, stating, “The conference convening in Paris today is a useless conference. It is being coordinated between the French and the Palestinians. Its goal is to try and force terms on Israel that conflict with our national needs. Of course, it pushes peace further away because it hardens the Palestinian positions and it also pushes them away from direct negotiations without preconditions. I must say that this conference is among the last twitches of yesterday's world. Tomorrow's world will be different – and it is very near”.
