Livni: Syria Can Discuss the Golan

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Sunday that Syria is likely to participate in the Annapolis conference.  Israel does not want negotiations over the strategic Golan region to be an official part of the agenda, she said, but Syrian representatives could bring the topic up of their own initiative. 

Livni explained that the Golan should not be an official part of the conference agenda because “The process between Israel and Syria, exactly like the process between Israel and the Palestinians, will be two-sided, and will not be the subject of an international conference.”  The conference is meant to lead to a round of serious negotiations, she said.
