No breakthrough in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli and Palestinian negotiators reportedly have asked to hold another meeting to prevent the collapse of the peace process.

The request to hold a meeting on Monday came after a meeting of the chief Palestinian and Israeli negotiators on Sunday night with U.S. envoy to the peace negotiations, Martin Indyk, which lasted for four hours and broke up around midnight.

Unnamed Palestinian officials told the French news agency AFP that: “The crisis continues. Throughout the meeting, the Israelis threatened the Palestinians and no solution was found to the crisis.”

An Israeli official told Reuters that the Sunday evening meeting was “businesslike.”

The Knesset met in emergency session on Monday morning to discuss the lack of progress in the peace negotiations, according to Ynet.
