Prime Minister Netanyahu met with British Prime Minister David Cameron Thursday in London where hundreds of protestors, calling for Netanyahu’s arrest, gathered outside of 10 Downingtown Street, calling for the end of the occupation and to “Free Palestine”.
Netanyahu stated that he ready to resumes negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, stating, “I want to say here in 10 Downing Street, and reaffirm again that I am ready to resume direct negotiations with the Palestinians with no conditions whatsoever to enter negotiations, and I’m willing to do so immediately.
Netanyahu additionally addressed the growing threat of the Islamic State in the region, stating that “The Middle East is disintegrating under the twin forces of militant Islam: The militant Sunnis led by ISIS and the militant Shiites led by Iran. And I believe that we can cooperate in practical ways to roll back the tide of militant Islam both in the Middle East and in Africa altogether.”
On Israel-UK ties, he stated that the “future belongs to those who innovate. Britain and Israel are two great centers of technology. Israel is a global hub of innovation, especially in cyber security. And I think that if we pull our resources together we can offer a better future and great prosperity.”
