The Palestinian Authority should focus on reconciliation among Palestinian factions instead of engaging in talks with Israel, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) leader Kayid al-Ghous said Monday.

Meeting with Israel "poison the atmosphere for reconciliation efforts," Palestinian news agency Ma'an quoted the PFLP leader as saying.

Arguing that the current round of meetings between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators in Amman is aimed at sniffing out Israel's positions is "a witless and misleading justification," Ghoul said. "Israel's attitudes are clearly announced and well known," he added, saying that by sitting down with Israel, the PA is allowing it to avoid international pressure.
