US Envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell called on Israel and the Palestinians Thursday to resume negotiations, in comments made to a US television station. Mitchell said he believed negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians could be concluded within two years from the moment they began. The envoy said he intended to return to the region in the coming days, and expressed hope for quick development on the political, security and economic fronts. Mitchell expressed hope that a Palestinian state will be able to properly function from the moment it is established. He added that in parallel to the Palestinian channel, Israel must advance negotiations with Syria.
