"Negotiations on the propsal will be hard, because Syrian authorities' trust is hard to gain," stated Israeli President Shimon Peres.

On his part, Israeli Parliament Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chair and ex top diplomat Avigdor Liberman expressed outright misgivings regarding the plan.

"The Russian initiative allows Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to gain time," commented Lieberman.

He also stressed that Israel does not know the details of the imlementation of the Russian plan.
