Sources close to former prime minister Ehud Barak said that he would probably meet in the next few days with Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert for a discussion on diplomatic and security issues. Olmert staff members, however, said that while the two had recently conversed over the telephone, it was unlikely a meeting would be held in the near future. Two days ago, Olmert held a similar conversation with former prime minister Shimon Peres. The two were expected to meet again after Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's prognosis was clearer. Peres denied reports that he was negotiating with Olmert regarding a specific ministerial position or a place on the Kadima party list.
