At his handover ceremony, Israel’s new far-right foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said that Israel is not bound by the 2007 Annapolis agreement to reach a peace deal with the Palestinians.  Outgoing foreign minister Tzipi Livni interrupted him while other diplomats “shift[ed] uncomfortably.”  Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says new Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu does not believe in peace.
