Former Israeli official confirms Israel-Syria talks on Golan

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu partook in secret, American-brokered discussions with Syria for a possible peace treaty based on a full Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights, an Israeli official who was involved in the talks confirmed to The New York Times.


According to Michael Herzog, a former senior Defense Ministry official, the process was cut short by the Arab Spring uprisings that swept the Middle East in early 2011. (Ynet)
