In response to a remark by Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem that the country wanted the Golan Heights back on a "gold platter," Minister-without-Portfolio Yossi Peled stated that "it's ludicrous for Syria to demand a prior agreement for a withdrawal from the Golan Heights, without any preconditions." "Setting preconditions, as Moallem has, empties the negotiations of all their contents and turns them into a joke," he continued. "In my presence, the prime minister made a commitment that a government headed by him will not pull out of the Golan, and I believe he will keep his promise."
