      Erekat: Peace Talks Could be Extended if Necessary

      The Palestinian Authority is ready to extend current peace talks with Israel beyond an April deadline if a detailed framework agreement is in place by then, chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said Wednesday, according to The Associated Press (AP).

      Erekat’s comments marked the first time PA negotiators have endorsed the idea of seeking a preliminary rather than a final deal by the end of a nine-month period of negotiations to which both sides agreed at the outset.
