Erekat: Israel Systemically Makes Effort to Spoil Talks

The chief Palestinian Authority (PA) negotiator on Sunday once again accused Israel of taking “actions against the Palestinian people” that indicate that it has “chosen settlers over peace.”

Saeb Erekat, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee, made the remarks during separate meetings with Luxembourg's foreign minister Jean Asselborn, UN envoy Robert Serry and U.S. peace envoy Martin Indyk, according to the Ma’an news agency.
