Israeli-Syrian Talks

Highlights
January 10, 2000: "During the course of the Shepherdstown Peace Talks this week, we have had intensive negotiations on all of the key issues. All four committees have been established and have been working, both formally and informally. We have presented a working document to the parties, that lays the groundwork for a serious effort to bridge the important gaps that remain.
     We have decided to recess the talks for a short break. Prime Minister Barak and Foreign Minister Shara have agreed to return to the discussions and negotiations on January the 19th, to continue the negotiations and work further towards a peace agreement." [Department Spokesman James Rubin]
