Olmert, Netanyahu Met in Secret


Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Opposition Leader Binyamin Netanyahu met in secret on Sunday. Likud Knesset Members who learned of the meeting Monday voiced displeasure at the fact that Netanyahu did not even brief them about the meeting in today's faction meeting. 

Likud Chairman Netanyahu denied reports that he discussed the possibility of joining Olmert's government as Finance Minister.

Netanyahu's bureau told reporters that the two discussed diplomatic matters ahead of the Sharm El-Sheikh summit and compared notes from their recent trips to the US.
