Erekat lists demands for talks

Atul Aneja

DUBAI: After agreeing to indirect talks mediated by the Americans with the Israelis, the Palestinians are hoping to address core issues of border alignments and security during the four-month long parleys.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said President Mahmoud Abbas handed over a letter to George Mitchell, U.S. envoy to West Asia, saying they had “agreed to join the proximity talks with Israel”.

“The issue of Jerusalem will be negotiated, and during the four-month proximity talks, the two issues of borders and security will also be discussed,” said Mr. Erekat.

He said the talks “will not start from zero,” and would seek to focus on decisions that would need to be quickly implemented on the ground.
