Then-foreign minister Tzipi Livni mentioned that Israel was "giving up the Golan" in peace talks with Syria, during negotiations with Palestinian Negotiator Ahmed Qurei, as revealed in the Palestine Papers leaked on Sunday.

In a document from May 21, 2008, Qurei congratulates Livni on talks with Syria, which she rebuffs, saying "it's not official. Talks are going on through Turkey."

In the same meeting, when negotiating the borders of a Palestinian State, Livni says "we're giving up the Golan, so we need more in Beitar Illit."
