Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu countered a controversial United Nations address by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Tuesday, rejecting Lieberman’s views on a possible land swap and asserting his belief that Israel and Palestinians could reach a peace deal within a year.

Referring to recent talks with French President Nikolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office said that Netanyahu told the two leaders he hoped “the positive talks with Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas] would continue.”

“It is vital, and I wholeheartedly believe that it is within our power to reach a framework agreement within a year and change Middle East history,” the PM reportedly said.

The Prime Minister’s Office added that the premier also accepted Sarkozy’s invitation to a peace summit to be held in Paris during the coming October, which would also be attended by Abbas.
