Israeli and Palestinian negotiators were to meet again on Monday in a fresh effort to salvage the teetering, U.S.-brokered peace process, Agence France-Presse reported U.S. and Palestinian officials as saying.
“Israeli and Palestinian negotiators met last night to discuss ways to overcome the crisis in the talks,” a U.S. official said.
“The meeting was serious and constructive, and both sides requested that the United States convene another meeting today (Monday) to continue the effort.”
A Palestinian official confirmed to AFP that a meeting was scheduled for later Monday, but neither side gave a time or location.
Accompanied by U.S. envoy Martin Indyk, the two sides met on Sunday evening, but Palestinian sources told AFP that the session ended without any breakthrough and an Israeli official was quoted by local media as saying the process was on the edge of collapse.
Israel’s parliament was also meeting in special session on Monday during its spring recess, for a debate on the peace negotiations called by opposition MPs critical of the government’s handling of the talks.
