A US proposal to renew peace talks, handed over by US Mideast envoy George Mitchell on his recent visit to the region, is being studied by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, according to Palestinian officials quoted in a Reuters report Monday.



The plan would see negotiations start at a lower level, before full-scale are launched between Israeli and Palestinian leaders, according to the source.



Other Palestinian officials quoted in the Reuters report said that Mitchell had suggested "confidence building measures" to improve living conditions in the West Bank.
