A meeting between Palestinian and Israeli negotiators in Jordan ended Tuesday night after the two sides had not met face-to-face for over a year. Israeli negotiator Yitzhak Molcho, his Palestinian counterpart Saeb Erekat, representatives of the Quartet and a Jordanian representative all met together, followed by a second meeting without the Quartet representatives.

Following the meeting, Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said that efforts to renew negotiations would continue and that additional meetings would be planned. "We don't want to raise expectations, but the importance of conducting dialogue should not be discounted," Judeh was quoted by Israel Radio as saying.

According to the Jordanian foreign minister, Erekat gave Molcho Palestinian positions on the issues of borders and security. Molcho, according to the report, said he would present Israel's positions on the issues in the coming weeks.
