Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his defense minister, Yitzhak Mordechai, issued a joint communique denying reports that the two were at odds over upcoming negotiations with the Palestinians. The statement said Mordechai was to negotiate “according to the policy of the prime minister and the Inner Cabinet.” It contradicted Netanyahu’s previous comments that Mordechai should only discuss the amendment of the Palestinian Covenant and the extent of a further Israeli redeployment.
