Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu should say the words "1-9-6-7" if he is serious about the peace process, senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat told Israel Radio Sunday morning.

Commenting about a plan in which Israel would agree to a Palestinian state on 1967 borders if the Palestinians agreed to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, Erekat said "Your title is the State of Israel, and that is how we recognize you. It's none of my business to determine who you are. I want to hear the numbers 1-9-6-7 from Netanyahu. Until we don't hear that, we're not going waste our time."

"We are ready for negotiations but Netanyahu has closed the doors on negotiations," the Palestinian official said. "He has ordered the demolition of homes, he has kicked people out, and has chosen the settlements."
