Minister Eitan: There are No Talks with Syria

Minister without portfolio Michael Eitan said, Friday morning, that there are no negotiations between Israel and Syria.

Responding during a Kol Yisrael government radio interview to a Yediot Acharonot report that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had expressed a willingness to withdraw from the Golan Heights in exchange for a complete peace agreement, the Likud lawmaker said that there are always entities which try to mediate and relay messages between the sides. He added that the public is not always aware of this and most of the contacts do not advance to a serious stage.
