Abbas: We're Willing to Resume Talks, But...


Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said on Thursday that he was ready to resume negotiations with Israel but, as he has done in the past, placed preconditions.

Speaking in a television interview and quoted by the Ma’an news agency, Abbas conditioned a return to talks on Israel releasing the fourth batch of terrorist prisoners and freezing construction in Judea and Samaria for three months.
