Israel’s justice minister canceled a meeting with Germany’s foreign minister after Joschka Fischer refused to come to the Justice Ministry because it is in eastern Jerusalem. Germany does not recognize Israel’s claim to the eastern part of the city, which was captured from Jordan in the 1967 Six- Day War. Fischer is in the Middle East for three days of talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
