Israeli envoys set off for the US on Tuesday for talks meant to lay the groundwork for renewed Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking, officials said. Representatives of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak will meet on Wednesday with Washington's special Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, they said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose the trip to the press. Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat will hold separate talks with Mitchell later this week.
