Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said on Sunday that the statement issued by the Middle East Quartet is a reconfirmation of the previous principles.

"The statement issued by the Middle East Quartet is a reconfirmation of the principles embodied in the unequivocal requirements demanded from the extremists and terror organizations," Livni said in a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry.

It welcomed Quartet unswerving stand against the extremists, saying that taking a firm stand against the extremists while reinforcing the moderates are measures that complement one another and represent the correct course of action.

The Quartet, grouping the United States, the United Nations, the European Union and Russia, held a foreign ministerial meeting in Washington on Friday.

In a statement issued after the meeting, the Quartet reaffirmed its support for the Middle East peace process and the establishment of a Palestinian state.

The statement also renewed support for international sanctions against the Hamas-led government, which were imposed after Hamas took office last March since the Islamic group rejected to recognize Israel, renounce violence and honor signed peace deals.
