PA: Peace talks can’t happen without pressing Israel

The Palestinian Authority foreign ministry calls on governments trying to arrange a meeting for Israeli and Palestinian leaders to first pressure Israel into halting settlement construction and “violations” against the Palestinian people.

“At a time of continuous international and regional activity to jumpstart negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians, Netanyahu’s radical government continues its escalation of aggression, settlements and daily crimes against the Palestinian people,” the ministry says in a statement.

“The ministry requests of those who have taken it upon themselves to push forward the train of negotiations and peace, to [end] their silence, and direct their pressure toward the Israeli government to compel it to end its settlement construction, violations and executions against the Palestinian people, in order to provide a proper environment to ensure the success of efforts to revive negotiations.”
