PA: Back to Talks Only with Freeze


Nabil Abu-Rudeinah, the spokesman for Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, rejected, Sunday, Israel's announcement that it was accepting the Quartet of Middle East peace broker nation's terms for returning to negotiations with the PA. He said, "A return to negotiations demands Israel's committment to stop building in the settlements and to recognize the [pre-June 5,] 1967 borders, without misleading or shirking international resolutions."

The Quartet proposal is for renewed negotiations without preconditions.
