Livni Reportedly Meets with Syrian Foreign Minister in NY

Despite record high tensions between the two countries, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni met with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem two days ago in New York, A-Sinara, a newspaper published in Nazareth reported on Thursday.

According to the report, the meeting was brokered by Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, and received prior approval from Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

The meeting, which focused on Israel-Syria tensions and methods of maintaining calm, was also attended by Israeli ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman, and the Syrian ambassador to Washington, Israel Radio reported.

Associates of Livni denied the A-Sinara report, and said no meeting ever took place between the two politicians. (Jerusalem Post)
