Abbas says Israel submitted no new proposals in exploratory talks with Palestinians

Following two meetings between Israeli and Palestinian officials after months with no direct negotiations, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that Israel had made no new proposals over how formal peace talks could be resumed. Two more meetings are set. “Until now, there is nothing new in the dialogue that is going on in Amman,” Abbas said. “We are not authorized to speak about what is going on in Amman, but our demands are known, and the Israelis didn’t present something we can accept,” referring to Palestinian insistence over a freeze of all settlement constructions by Israel.
