Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Liebermann has ruled out any final peace deal with the Palestinians that would end the Israel-Palestine conflict, Anadolu reported on Tuesday.

“The best scenario for solving the Israel-Palestine conflict is a long-term interim agreement on a diplomatic vision for Gaza,” he told a parliamentary meeting in the Knesset. “We must not accept a situation in which normalisation with the Arab countries will be held hostage to the Palestinian issue.”
