Minister Says Talks with PA are Doomed – Temporarily


Minister of Intelligence, International Relations and Strategic Affairs, Yuval Steinitz, says that it depends on Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas – aka Abu Mazen – whether or not the fourth and final tranche of the release of Palestinian Arab terrorists takes place. Steinitz pointed at statements by Abbas, according to which he is only continuing with the negotiations because Israel is releasing terrorists prisoners, as a “goodwill gesture” toward the PA.
