Following reports that Martin Indyk said former foreign minister Tzipi Livni warned Palestinian officials against accepting a peace deal proposed by then-prime minister Ehud Olmert, the former US ambassador issued a statement on Thursday, stressing that he was not in the room when the incident took place. I was not present at the negotiating table but heard accounts from several sources, Indyk said in a statement quoted by Army Radio. "I don't believe Livni insinuated to the Palestinians that their situation would improve if they rejected Olmert's offer," the former US ambassador to Israel reportedly said.
