Netanyahu: Israel wants peace with Syria
Israel's prime minister on Sunday said his country is open to peace talks with Syria. Israeli and Syrian officials have exchanged threats over the past week, raising concerns of an escalation between two countries.
Israel desires peace agreements with "all of its neighbors," Netanyahu told his weekly Cabinet meeting. "We did it with Egypt and Jordan, and we want to achieve similar agreements with the Palestinians and the Syrians," he said, according to the AP. "I hope that we are on the brink of renewing negotiations with the Palestinians, and we are open to renewing the process with the Syrians as well."
