Israel Rejects PA Demands for Talks Extension

Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas stated today (Tuesday) that conditions such as a construction freeze in Judea and Samaria would be non-negotiable should Israel desire to continue peace talks.

Israel immediately rejected Abbas’s demands. A spokesperson for the Israeli government told AFP that “He who makes such conditions does not want peace.”
