The Palestinian Authority will not return to peace negotiations unless Israel agrees to stop building in east Jerusalem as well as in West Bank settlements, PA President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday, Reuters reported. Abbas's comments came following a meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo.

"Of course ... if there is no complete halt to settlements in all of the Palestinian territories including Jerusalem, we will not accept," said the PA president.

Abbas added that the US had not formally requested that the Palestinians return to the negotiating table for renewed peace talks with Israel.
