A meeting between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas could possibly take place in Luxembourg, if not in Moscow, the premier indicated Monday.

In a joint press conference, Netanyahu said his visiting counterpart from Luxembourg, Xavier Bettel, had invited him to the small European country.

"Prime Minister Bettel has invited me to Luxembourg, and he said the Palestinians might also come there," Netanyahu said. "Therefore, it's either Moscow or Luxembourg," he asserted in reference to a Russian-offered meeting between himself and Abbas that has yet to come to fruition.

"We'll see, either one - or any other place," he added, reiterating that Israel is "always ready for direct negotiations without preconditions."
