Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Sunday that he will not agree to Turkish mediation in any future negotiations with Syria. "If the Syrians want to talk, let them talk to us only in a face-to-face meeting," he said. Speaking to a gathering of ambassadors at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, Liebemran added that "all sorts of peripheral government sources have hinted that there is a place for Turkish mediation. They can forget about it." Lieberman continued to say that beginning in 2010, there will be no "secret diplomacy" and that "whoever wants to meet with us can do so without a veil of secrecy. We're not outcasts… everything will be done in a transparent manner."
