There have been no breakthroughs in the Israeli-Syrian negotiations held in West Virginia, according to U.S. officials. The two sides have “enormous decisions” to make, said State Department spokesman James Rubin, who added that the United States does not “expect those decisions to be made in a matter of days.” Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Syrian Foreign Minister Farouk al- Sharaa were expected to leave the negotiations early this week. It remained unclear whether the discussions would continue among lower-level delegations.
