By Barak Ravid, Haaretz Correspondent, DPA and Haaretz Staff

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni set out for China on Saturday night for a visit that is part of a broader Israeli effort to press world leaders on Iran’s nuclear program.

Livni is expected to tell Chinese officials that if the international community turns a blind eye to Iran’s nuclear designs, there will be dire consequences for the struggle between the extremists and the moderates in the Middle East and, as a result, for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
