Vice Premier Shaul Mofaz said Thursday morning that he believed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks would be renewed soon without pre-conditions.

Speaking with Israel Radio from Washington, Mofaz said that over the past three years the Palestinians have been placing pre-conditions on re-starting the negotiations, and Israel and the US were mistaken in allowing them to do so.

The center of discussion during Mofaz's US trip thus far has been the Iranian threat. Mofaz consulted Wednesday with members of Congress on how to move forward with stiffer sanctions against Iran in the wake of another inconclusive meeting between world powers and Tehran.

He also discussed the topic of Iran with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, after which he released a statement calling for the the West to impose harsher sanctions on Iran.
