The Palestinians are busily seeking to arrange a meeting between PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and US Secretary of State John Kerry, Ramallah’s foreign minister, Riyad al-Maliki, told Palestinian media on Tuesday.

According to al-Maliki, the Palestinians are intent on utilizing the Abbas-Kerry meeting, which is due to take place in a few days somewhere in Europe, to communicate their reservations regarding the peace negotiations with Israel.

The Palestinians are unhappy over what they say are Israel’s repeated attempts to dictate the talks’ agenda, Israel Radio reported. Abbas and his aides are also displeased with what they perceive as US mediator Martin Indyk’s insufficient participation in the negotiations thus far.

The independent Palestinian news agency Ma’an is reporting that US President Barack Obama is working hard to persuade Abbas to meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sometime this month, though this information has not been confirmed by another source.
