PA rejects Israel call to resume talks

April 10, 2011

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — The Palestinian Authority has rejected calls by the deputy foreign minister of Israel to resume negotiations.

PLO official Saeb Erekat said Danny Ayalon’s demand late Saturday was “absurd and not serious.”

“If Israel wants talks, it can choose between peace and settlements. It can stop all settlements in the West Bank including East Jerusalem.”

Erekat held Israel responsible for the failure of the latest talks “because it chose to continue settlements rather than peace.”
