July 8, 2010 14:58

Defense Minister Ehud Barak met today with the Shamgar Commitee which is charged with setting government principles for negotiations for the release of hostages and missing persons.

The committee is headed by former High Court of Justice President Meir Shamgar, Maj.-Gen. (Res.) Amos Yaron and Professor Asa Kasher.

Despite the fact that the committee's full report has been delayed, they presented the defense minister with their recommended organizational agreements that don't touch on the questions of considerations, principles and exchanges in negotiations for the release of hostages.

Barak accepted the principles which the committee presented before him and will bring the recommendations up for discussion with the prime minister and the cabinet.
