Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat rejected Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's calls for bi-monthly,  face-to-face meetings with PA President Mahmoud Abbas during upcoming peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, Israel Radio reported on Saturday, citing an interview Erekat conducted with the BBC in Arabic.

In the interview, Erekat added that it is too soon to establish who exactly will meet for negotiations, how often they will do so, and where the meetings will take place.

He emphasized that the most important issue determining the success or failure of the talks at this point is Netanyahu's stance on whether or not to extend the building freeze in the West Bank which is scheduled to end on September 26.
