MP from Israeli Majority Faction Confirms Barak to Leave Camp David
A leading Israeli MP Wednesday confirmed to Israel public radio that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak had decided to leave the Camp David summit "with all his team" because negotiations are at an impasse.
"Mr. Barak and his whole team -- ministers, advisers and experts -- are getting ready to return because of the impasse which the negotiations with the Palestinians have hit," Ofer Pines Paz, head of the parliamentary faction of Barak's One Israel bloc told the radio.
The Palestinians "are unable not only to accept the Israeli positions, but even to move closer to the American positions," he said.
He said Barak's decision to leave had been taken in "coordination" with the US government - OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (AFP)
