Körber Foundation welcomed Tzipi Livni, Chairperson of the Zionist Union and former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel to participate in a Political Breakfast. The discussion with Members of the German Bundestag, representatives from the ministries and experts from German think tanks focused on the regional changes after the nuclear agreement, on current challenges for Israel’s foreign policy and on different visions for the region’s future. Tzipi Livni highlighted the importance of national security to Israel, with regard to the current status of the peace process between Israel and Palestine she emphasized the need for Israel to reenergize the process in order to avoid Israel’s political isolation.
Körber Foundation regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking actors within Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Background Discussions. As in the Bergedorf Round Tables, the discussions take place shielded from the public, so as to enable a confidential, frank, and constructive exchange.
