JERUSALEM, Israel - A senior Israeli official denied reports Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is ready to accept the pre-1967 lines as the basis for restarting negotiations with the Palestinians. Netanyahu and others have referred to those lines as "indefensible borders."
"The prime minister has been very clear. There will be no return to the 1967 borders. Future borders must be negotiated. They must reflect new realities on the ground and Israel's national and strategic interests," an Israeli official told CBN News.
