Barak meets with George Mitchell

Defense Minister Ehud Barak was meeting with US Middle East envoy George Mitchell Saturday evening to discuss indirect Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations that are expected to start soon.
Mitchell was expected to meet with other Israeli and Palestinian leaders over the next few days to try and lay the groundwork for negotiations before US Vice President Joe Biden arrives in the region next week.
Biden is expected to announce during his visit that Israelis and Palestinians are resuming talks.
