In Cairo, Palestinian leader says letter to be sent to Netanyahu next
week says, ´ You have made the PA a non-authority´
Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat is expected to meet one of
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu´s aides on Tuesday to discuss the
stalled peace process, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said
Monday during a ceremony where he inaugurated a new building for the
Palestinian embassy in Cairo.
The Israeli aide Abbas mentioned is apparently Attorney Yitzhak
Tuesday´s meeting is apparently related to a letter the Palestinians
plan to send Netanyahu next week which specifies the Palestinian
Authority´s conditions for jumpstarting the peace negotiations.
A Palestinian official told Ynet on Monday that the Authority hoped
the letter would be delivered to Netanyahu by a delegation headed by
Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and Erekat, but realizes the Israeli
premier may not agree to meet the senior Palestinian officials.
According to Abbas, the letter states that If Israel is not willing
to return to the negotiating table, the Palestinian Authority will
file a complaint with international bodies.
"Israel must accept international legitimacy and stop construction in
the settlements," Abbas said in Cairo.
He said that in the letter, the PA leadership wrote to
Netanyahu: "You have made the PA a non-authority. You have taken away
from the PA all its commitments and what it was doing and
supervising. Now we have been left with nothing."
