Former Israeli Prime Minister calls for dialogue with Palestine

Tel Aviv, Jul 10 (Prensa Latina) Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert criticized the government's lack of interest in engaging in a serious dialogue with the Palestinians.

Olmert said during an interview with Army Radio that the current cabinet gave superficial signs of moving forward with the talks due to pressure from the United States, on the eve of President Joe Biden’s visit to the region.

However, the politician stressed that this does not symbolize any real progress in this regard.

Olmert considered the current Israeli strategy very dangerous and advocated the resumption of contacts.

President of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas held separate talks last Friday with his Israeli counterpart, Issac Herzog, and Prime Minister Yair Lapid.

The Israeli press pointed out that the reason for the phone call was to congratulate him on the Eid al-Adha or Feast of the Sacrifice, one of the main celebrations of Muslims.

A day earlier, Abbas received Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz in Ramallah to discuss security coordination ahead of Biden’s trip. During his meeting with Gantz, the president demanded that Tel Aviv comply with the agreements reached and avoid a regional escalation.
