Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday told US envoy David Hale that the Palestinians would not return to the negotiating table with Israel unless the Israeli government froze construction in all settlements and east Jerusalem neighborhoods and accepted the pre-1967 lines as the basis for a two-state solution.

Abbas also told Hale that the Palestinians are prepared to work with the Quartet members - the US, EU, UN and Russia - on all the core issues like Jerusalem, borders, refugees and security, said Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat.

Erekat said the during the meeting in Ramallah, Abbas also urged the US Administration to reconsider its opposition to the Palestinian application for full membership in the UN.
