Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas hopes that Israeli and Palestinian negotiators will be able to pave the way for peace talks by January 26, a Quartet-set deadline for preparing a negotiations framework, the Palestinian Wafa news agency reported Tuesday.

In a meeting between Abbas and Jordan's King Abdullah, the two discussed paving the way for peace talks, but reiterated demands that Israel halt all settlement activity and accept the 1967 lines as the borders of the future Palestinian state, according to Wafa.

Abbas said that, even if the chances of success are low, Palestinians should take advantage of the opportunity to renew negotiations.
