JERUSALEM (Jan. 27)
Premier Shimon Peres believes that the talks between Israel and Lebanon at Nakura have reached an end.
Cabinet Secretary Yossi Beilin told reporters after today’s weekly cabinet session that the Premier had told the Ministers the Nakura talks have apparently ended because of the impossible demands of the Lebanese. Peres was reportedly referring to Lebanon’s insistence that Israel provide a detailed timetable for its complete withdrawal from Lebanon.
Beilin noted, however, that Peres’ remarks constituted his assessement of the situation, and did not mean that Israel opposed a resumption of the talks.
