Israel, Palestinians to hold peace talks with US envoy
Israeli and Palestinian negotiators were to hold a meeting today, with US envoy Martin Indyk, in a bid to find a way to extend their faltering peace talks.
The meeting had been put off by a day, with Israel implying the delay was due to the killing of an Israeli police officer in the West Bank.
But the Palestinians said it was to enable the participation of US envoy Martin Indyk.
The Palestinians want a state based on the lines that existed before Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the 1967 Six-Day War.
