November 3, 2008 10:17

Likud MK Limor Livnat on Monday blasted statements made recently by sources close to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to the effect that Olmert would guarantee an Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights in exchange for direct talks with Syria. The prime minister, Livnat told Israel Radio, has no right to conduct negotiations with the Syrians and the Palestinians in the period leading up to elections. Such negotiations, Livnat said, could cause damage to Israel and would be binding to any future government.
