Direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians have been frozen, and negotiations are currently undergoing with American mediation, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told pan-Arab newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi on Sunday.

"Meetings are now taking place between the US administration and us on the one hand, and between Israel and the US administration on the other hand," Erekat said.

Erekat also said none of the security ideas offered by the US to the two sides were written down, but rather expressed verbally so as to check the pulse to the proposals first.
