MK Yatom calls for peace talks with Syria without preconditions

Labor MK Dani Yatom called on Saturday to renew talks with Syria without setting any preconditions, Israel Radio reported. "The price-tag [of a peace deal] is known and it is easier to settle the crisis with Syria than to solve the Palestinian issue," said Yatom. The Knesset member emphasized that beginning negotiations with Damascus would also speed up negotiations with the Palestinians.
