Netanyahu: Peace Talks with Palestinians Will Be Tough

 

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday that some details were still being worked out but that if all goes well, Palestinian and Israeli officials would travel to Washington for initial talks

VOA News

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has assured his Cabinet that any results from resumed negotiations with the Palestinians will be put to a national referendum.

His comment Sunday follows a U.S. brokered agreement to restart long-stalled peace talks between the two sides. Netanyahu told his ministers the process will not be easy, but that Israel's approach will be sincere. He said he hopes the talks will be handled responsibly and practically.

The last direct talks collapsed in 2010. Borders, refugees, security, Jewish settlements and Jerusalem are among the difficult issues that have not been resolved.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday that some details were still being worked out but that if all goes well, Palestinian and Israeli officials would travel to Washington for initial talks within the next week or two.

Kerry announced the agreement for resuming negotiations after meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas several times during a four-day visit to Jordan.

White House officials said President Barack Obama spoke by phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday to ask him to work with Kerry to "resume negotiations with the Palestinians as soon as possible."

Israeli officials said Saturday that they would release a "limited" number of Palestinian prisoners as a gesture for resuming talks, but have not given further details.
