The Palestinian Authority reiterated Sunday its opposition to resuming peace talks with Israel without a full cessation of settlement construction and the release of Palestinian prisoners.

The announcement came following a meeting between PA President Mahmoud Abbas and US Secretary of State John Kerry in Amman on Saturday night.

Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat said the the key to resuming the stalled peace talks was in the hands of Israel.

Erekat told the Japanese envoy to the PA during a meeting in Jericho that the Palestinians have not changed their proposition regarding the resumption of the peace process following US President Barack Obama's visit to the region last week.
