JNS.orgIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama are expected to agree on a one-year extension of the current American-brokered Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations at their White House meeting in early March, Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis (Likud) said at a cultural event in Ramat Gan on Saturday.

“There is no confrontation with the U.S., but there are certainly some fundamental differences of opinion” relating to the negotiations, Akunis said, according to Israel Hayom.

“An Israeli withdrawal to the June 4, 1967, borders (rumored to be the basis of Secretary of State John Kerry’s forthcoming framework agreement proposal) would be like a suicidal person jumping off the roof of the Azrieli Towers (a trio of Tel Aviv skyscrapers),” Akunis said.
