Abbas: Netanyahu did Not Respond to My Specific Points


Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority (PA) said, Tuesday, that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu gave messages that were "too general" in a recent exchange of letters. Interviewed by Russia's Interfax news agency, ahead of his Tuesday meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Abu-Mazen said that Netanyahu did not address points he had raised.

Abbas said the diplomatic deadlock between Israel and the PA is due to continued construction in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and called for "a freeze on Jewish construction in the territories which is spreading like crawfish."
