PLO official Says Renewing Direct Talks Still Subject to Conditions

Senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath told Ma’an on Sunday that a return to direct negotiations is subject to several conditions.

“We are waiting. Returning back to negotiations depends on two steps we asked the American side to agree on,” Shaath said.

“If they agree, we will go to the next step which is preliminary negotiations in Washington to discuss the rules and the terms of direct negotiations.”

“We will not go back to negotiations unless we get what we asked for,” Shaath said, without providing further details.

Shaath added that the EU’s recent position on Israeli settlements contributed to the return to negotiations and had a positive impact on the US position,.

President Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly stressed that his demands of a freeze to Israeli settlement building on occupied land and release of prisoners held by Israel must be met before talks can resume.

  1. Standard operating procedure for Middle Eastern (Arab) bazar horse traders… You THINK you have a deal and then it turns out that you have to pay just a "little bit" more… This is, of course, repeated as long as the horse trader expects to get away with it…

  2. Cody Flecker says:

    If the Palestinians wait long enough, Israel will cave into their demands. The issue is time, and the Palestinians have enough of that feature. Israel is weak, and the Palestinians know this…the issue is time.

  3. Cody Flecher.
    Wake up, you twit.
    Israel is strong, no matter what you say.

    Eventually, the world will wake up to realise who these people are.
    iIf the PLO thinks they can damage Israel, they are wrong.

    I hope they have heard of a boomerang. That is what will happen to the PLO.

  4. The Palestinians know nothing will come out of the talks. The talkers will derail it themselves but meanwhile they will have gained what they want, more free terrorists. It has nothing to do with Israel's alleged weakness. Israel has a western mentality and not fanatic jihadist one that promises 72 virgins and 7th heaven to martyrs…

  5. I disagree that Israel is afraid of the Palestinians, but rather of their well-oiled propaganda machine, albeit based on lies and manipulation, that excites and perpetuates the massive anti-semitic and muslim invasion of our world today.
