SECRETARY RICE IN JERUSALEM

Sharon - Rice

'Israel & Palestinians Must Be Ready To Make Hard Choices To Advance Peace'

'Israel Should Refrain From Unilateral Steps In East Jerusalem, Palestinians Must Halt Terrorism'

:: IsraCast Audio ::

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has begun her visit to Israel by calling on Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to leave the status of east Jerusalem to negotiations and not to prejudge the issue by taking unilateral steps. As for the Palestinian terrorism, it was unacceptable and must not be permitted to derail the peace process. On Iran's drive for nuclear weapons, Rice said 'this is the time for diplomacy' to stop Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons. The Secretary also said it would be 'a mistake' for Russia to sell advanced missiles to Syria, a country which supports terrorism and dominates neighboring Lebanon. Interviewed on Channel One television by reporter Ayala Hasson, Secretary of State Rice was first asked why she would not be participating in the Sharon-Abbas summit hosted by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Sharm el Sheik on February 8th.
