The Palestinian Authority reiterated Sunday its refusal to return to the negotiating table unless Israel stopped settlement construction and released Palestinian prisoners.

In response to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s call for reviving stalled peace talks with the PA, chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat said that the Palestinians were not setting conditions for returning to the negotiating table.

“These are not Palestinian conditions, but obligations that Israel is required to fulfill,” Erekat said. He said that there would be no EU initiative to resume the peace talks without US involvement.
