Vice Premier Silvan Shalom said that the cabinet's response to the Quartet initiative for restarting peace talks "needs to be in the positive direction," but expressed two reservations to the proposal in an interview with Army Radio Wednesday.

"There are two problematic items," Shalom said of demands within the Quartet initiative. "The first is that everything needs to be done within a year."

The second, he said, is that within three months, the need to reach agreements on borders and security - something that is impossible to do without knowing what happens with all the other issues, primarily the right of return and Jerusalem."
