Former prime minister and defense minister Ehud Barak indicated on Saturday that he was not planning to return to political life and denied rumors that he was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Barak told Israel's Channel 1 that his recent media silence - including during Operation Protective Edge - was due to belief that he did not deem it appropriate to address Israeli leadership from television stations.
