The Prime Minister's Office on Wednesday issued a communiqué welcoming the Quartet statement released earlier in the evening "calling for a continuation of direct talks without pre-conditions." 

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the communiqué said, will suggest to Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad --  when they meet next week -- that the level of talks between he two sides be upgraded, and that he meet directly with PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

Fayyad is expected to deliver a letter to Netanyahu spelling out the Palestinian position on the talks. A few days later, Netanyahu's negotiator Yitzhak Molcho is expected to deliver a letter in response to Abbas.
