The Prime Minister's Office has issued a statement Sunday, that Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu was willing "to give up the Golan Heights, before negotiations even began." "The prime minister will persist in trying to achieve peace, and will do so in a reasonable and responsible manner, taking a stance that will ensure Israel's security," it continued. The comments came in response to Netanyahu's earlier accusation that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was offering to give up the Golan before negotiations began. Netanyahu also said that Olmert is "behaving like an amateur."
