We Won't Be in Government that Negotiates over Golan

Chairman Avigdor Lieberman of the Yisrael Beytenu party said, Monday afternoon, "Yisrael Beytenu will not be a partner in any government that carries out negotiations on the Golan. We will not concede the Golan Heights, even at the price of breaking up the coalition or sitting in the opposition."

Lieberman was responding to a report last week that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had expressed willingness to give the Golan back to Syria in exchange for a complete peace agreement. The Prime Minister's Office denied the report.
