Israeli, PA Negotiators Met Secretly for the Second Time
Israeli and Palestinian negotiators met secretly in Jerusalem on Tuesday, a senior Palestinian Authority official said, a week after US-brokered peace talks were relaunched in the Holy City.
"A meeting was held today between the Palestinian delegation, headed by Saeb Erakat and Mohammad Shtayyeh, and the Israeli delegation of (Justice Minister) Tzipi Livni and Yitzhak Molcho," the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
Details of the discussions were not revealed, apparently consistent with a request from Washington last week for a strict news blackout.
