    (​Communicated by the Foreign Minister’s Media Advisor)

    Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Liberman met today (Tuesday, 20 November 2012) with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem.

    At the meeting, FM Liberman stated that “We appreciate the international community’s position, which unequivocally supports Israel’s right to protect itself and its citizens,” and thanked Secretary General Ban for his efforts to bring quiet and calm to the region.
     
    “Nevertheless,” FM Liberman added, “Talk and public calls on Israel to abstain from a ground operation strengthen Hamas and extend the current confrontation. If Israel will be forced to initiate a ground operation, it will not be a limited operation, nor will it be ‘Operation Pillar of Defense 2,’ but rather ‘Operation Defensive Shield 2.’”
