In a meeting with French Foreign Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie on Thursdsay, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said he will work to disconnect Israeli infrastructure from the Gaza Strip.

Israel “will work to disconnect from Gaza in the matter of infrastructure, mainly the electricity and water,” the prime minister said.

Additionally, the two agreed to cooperate in working towards the creation of a regional emergency response system for disasters such as the Carmel fire.

Earlier Thursday, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened to halt diplomatic relations with the Palestinian Authority and request that the US refrain from giving foreign aid to the West Bank government.

Lieberman said that while Israel has taken steps to facilitate peace with the Palestinians, the PA continues to “commemorate terrorists by naming streets and squares after them in their cities.”

While meeting with visiting French Foreign Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie, Lieberman said that the current unbalanced situation cannot be allowed to continue.

Lieberman stated that the Foreign Ministry is preparing a report detailing Israeli and Palestinian activities since the current government was formed. The report is meant to show the large gaps in what the two sides have done to facilitate peace.
