PA: Israel Must Accept our Terms for Talks

Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki responded on Tuesday to Israeli calls for an immediate resumption of negotiations, saying that Israel must accept the PA's list of terms before talks can restart.

"[Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu has to accept all terms of reference and stop settlement activity including east Jerusalem, to enter negotiations immediately with [a] timeframe not to exceed six months with international guarantees to make any negotiations serious and credible," al Jazeera quoted Malki as saying while in New York for the United Nations General Assembly.
