Erekat: Low Expectations for PA-Israel Negotiations


Saeb Erekat, head of the Palestinian Authority (PA)'s negotiating team in peace talks with Israel, has stated that he has very little hopes for the sucess of talks and has accused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of trying to expel Arabs from PA lands.

A Palestinian news agency has reported that in an address to students of Arab American University in Jenin, Erekat claimed that Israel's agreement to release convicted terrorists back into civilian areas in exchange for more buildings in Judea and Samaria was "totally groundless" and a "falsehood."
