Im not placing these conditions before the entrance gate, he said. I have a clear idea of what has to be done to achieve a workable peace. Im prepared to do it, but I dont place any conditions on entering negotiations.
I dont think we should spend or waste another four years negotiating about the negotiations. I think we should just get on with it, Netanyahu said.
But once those talks begin, its not only Israel that has to make concessions... The Palestinians will have to make concessions too, he said. Thats part of the world, and thats part of a genuine, workable and durable peace.
But, should both sides sign a final status agree, Netanyahu was clear that a piece of paper did not guarantee peace.
We need a peace process and a peace result that gives us peace and gives us security; and that is not achieved by merely signing a piece of paper, Netanyahu said.
