      PA Reiterates: No Talks without Preconditions


      The Palestinian Authority reiterated on Sunday its position that it is ready to resume negotiations with Israel but only with preconditions. The comments were made in response to an announcement by EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton that the two sides would be invited to a meeting in the coming days.

      “We are ready to return to talks on condition that construction in the settlements stop completely and that Israel recognizes the 1967 borders [1949 armistice lines –ed.] as the basis for the peace process,” PA spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh told the WAFA news agency.
