Israeli FM: Dialogue with Palestinians must go on

Israel's foreign minister says it is important that direct talks between his country and the Palestinians continue.
Speaking to reporters in Sofia Thursday, Avigdor Lieberman said Israel believes in direct negotiations with the Palestinians without preconditions and middlemen.
Lieberman said there was no reason to extend the 10-month halt on new housing in West Bank settlements since it had not led to positive results.
Palestinians charge that construction in the settlements is aimed at preventing the establishment of a Palestinian state, and the issue has brought recently renewed U.S.-brokered peace talks to a standstill.
Lieberman said the European Union could also participate more actively in guaranteeing the security of the borders.
