Israel denies receiving message from Syria

May 17th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Politics

picture-17Israel’s Prime Minister Benyamin Netenyahu is denying he was passed a message from Bashar Al-Assad, by Jordan’s King Abduallah.

It comes after Abdullah met Bashar in Damascus earlier this month, and then met Netanyahu in Amman on Thursday.

Al-Arabiyah TV claimed Bashar had told Abdullah to inform Israel it was ready for negotiations. It seemed a bit strange at the time to be doing things in secret – Syria has been quite open about being ready for more talks.

But now Israel says Jordan’s King didn’t tell him anything about Syria. Or maybe Netanyahu just wasn’t listening.
