A determination to make the peace talks work was expressed by Israeli officials accompanying Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday to Sharm e-Sheikh for a second round of direct peace talks with Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

A senior official traveling with Netanyahu reacted to Palestinian threats to bolt the talks should Israel refuse to extend the settlement building moratorium saying, "We are going there looking for something else, it's not an all or nothing proposition."

The official pointed out that if Israelis and Palestinians are not able to find a compromise solution on this matter, then how will it be possible for them to overcome more difficult issues later in the negotiations.

"Israel is looking for ways not to 'blow up' the talks and to help make them work," said the official.
