Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday evening, that peace is only made "between the strong," especially in the "Middle East and the brutal world in which we live".
He also said that Israel will not entrust its national security to others, but it will always defend itself by itself against any threat.
His statements were made during a graduation ceremony for cadets from the National Defense College held on Mt. Scopus in Jerusalem.
Earlier in the day, before a meeting with visiting Japanese Foreign Minister, Netanyahu referred to the peace talks, but continued to remain vague about when exactly they would begin.
He said, "We both want to see peace between Israel and the Palestinians. I hope that soon we will be able to see the beginning of peace talks. Our team is ready – we've always been ready."
