Prime Minister Ariel Sharon met on Monday afternoon with Labor Chairman Amir Peretz. According to Israeli law, a prime minister is required to update the head of the opposition on occasion. Sharon briefed Peretz on recent security-related issues, namely the continued Kassam threat in southern Israel. After the meeting, Peretz complained that socio-economic issues, which he expected would be raised by Sharon, were not discussed during the meeting.
