MOSCOW -- The Israeli opposition leader, Tzipi Livni, said that the Israeli government was disappointed that Russia voted in favour of the Goldstone Report at the UN Human Rights Commission in Geneva.
She added that it was not important now to discuss the reasons behind voting in favour of the report but what is important is to prevent the report being discussed further and any resolutions being issued by the UN Security Council or the International Criminal Court in this regard.
The Russian news agency, Ria Novosti reported on Friday that Livni made these comments during an interview with the Moscow-based Russian newspaper "kommersant".
Novosti added that Livni was on a short visit to Russia and that her discussions with Russian officials covered the Goldstone Report, the Iranian issue and the Middle East peace process.
