      PA Ready to Extend Negotiations Beyond April

      Miami Herald reports the PA is ready to extend current peace talks with Israel beyond an April deadline if a detailed framework agreement is in place by then, the chief PA negotiator said Wednesday.

      The comments by Saeb Erekat, notes Miami Herald, marked the first time Palestinian negotiators endorsed the U.S. 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.
