Israel will rebuff any attempt ''that would bring terror into our home,'' Israeli PM Netanyahu says before talks with U.S. Secretary of State to discuss U.N. proposals for a Palestinian state. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday (December 15) he would tell U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that Israel will rebuff any moves at the United Nations to set a timeframe for a withdrawal from territory Palestinians seek for a state. Kerry will meet Netanyahu in Rome on Monday to discuss various proposals for a Palestinian state that are circulating at the United Nations. Later on Monday, Kerry will travel to Paris for talks with European counterparts and then on to London to meet Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat and a delegation from the Arab League, who will urge the United States not to use its U.N. Security Council veto to block the proposals. The hastily-arranged meetings suggested urgency in America's drive to manage efforts among Security Council members to draft a new proposal before Israeli elections in March. Kerry said on Friday he wanted to defuse tensions during the talks.
