Israel was expected to release 26 Palestinian prisioners on August 13 to constitute the first of four stages of prisoner releases as a gesture for resuming direct peace talks, Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat said Saturday.

Erekat's statement to Palestinian news agency Ma'an mirrored that of Israel's chief negotiator Tzipi Livini on Friday about expected peace talk proceedings within the next two weeks.
