On his birthday on Tuesday, Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett downplayed speculation about renewed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

Speaking to Army Radio, Bennett said although the party will not veto negotiations, he does not believe there is a "real chance" that talks will go ahead at all.

His comments come ahead of US Secretary John Kerry's efforts to reignite the talks, and Israeli media reports that PA President Mahmoud Abbas was willing to return to the table without preconditions.
