‘No Chance’

Israel: No Change to Egypt Peace Deal

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that his country would not agree to adjust its 1979 peace deal with Egypt. Israel and Egypt have agreed to temporarily waive troop limits while Egypt tries to restore order to the Sinai Peninsula, but Egypt claims that the troop limits infringe on national sovereignty, and many have called for more permanent adjustments to the deal. That’s not going to happen, Lieberman told Israel Radio on Sunday. “There is no chance that Israel will agree to any kind of change,” Lieberman said. “The Egyptians shouldn’t try to delude themselves or delude others, and they should not rely on this demand.”
