Peace talks will soon resume on the basis of the Quartet's proposals, Defense Minister Ehud Barak predicted in an interview with Israel Radio on Thursday.

Saying that the proposals are aimed at just bringing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table, Barak explained that "The Quartet peeled away the preconditions [to talks]."

Israel will be able to approach Palestinian statehood with more optimism if it sees the Palestinians are willing to talk about all of the issues associated with a two-state solution, including that of Jerusalem, and display "total accountability," Barak said.

The defense minister asserted that Palestinian statehood, under the right conditions, is in Israel's interests and should not be perceived as a threat.
