Abdullah Delivered EU Plan to Abbas

Jordan's King Abdullah has presented Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas with a document that includes a European initiative for resuming negotiations with Israel, the al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper reported.

The initiative calls on the PA to return to the negotiating table even without a Jewish construction freeze in exchange for an EU promise to support the PA's UN bid if negotiations fail within the next year.
