Livni: PA Promised to Continue With Talks, Building or Not


After days of hedging, Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas confirmed that his team to the U.S.-sponsored negotiations with Israel has resigned.

The announcement by Abbas confirmed comments made over a week ago by Saeb Erekat, head of the team, that the PA negotiators were leaving the talks because of Israel's announcement that it would build new homes in Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem.
