Senior PLO Member: Secret Talks at the End of 2010

Yasser Abed Rabbo, who serves on the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, said, Monday, that Israel and the Palestinian Authority tried to run a "back channel" of negotiations at the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011. Interviewed by the Walla Website, he said there was a series of meetings with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's personal emissary, attorney Yitzchak Molcho.

Abed Rabbo - one of the powers behind the Geneva land-for-peace initiative - claimed that during the talks, which ended in his meeting Netanyahu at Molcho's house in central Israel, the prime minister expressed his readiness to renew negotiations within the framework of two states on the June 4, 1967 borders, but then he took it back and the connection was broken off.
