Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke with newly resigned US envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell and thanked him for his efforts to promote the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, the PMO said in a statement released on Saturday.

Netanyahu told Mitchell he was sorry to hear of his resignation. The prime minister also expressed sorrow at what he called the Palestinian refusal to come to the negotiating table.

He blamed the Palestinian Authority's setting of preconditions for torpedoing the peace talks, which Mitchell worked to promote.

Netanyahu expressed to Mitchell his disappointment in the failure of peace talks and the Palestinian Authority's eventual reconciliation with Hamas.
