The Palestinian Authority said Monday that Clinton did not carry new ideas that could pave the way for the resumption of the peace talks with Israel.

A PA official in Ramallah said after the meeting between Clinton and Fayyad that the talks focused on the PA’s demand for additional weapons to its security forces in the West Bank and the release of Palestinians from Israeli prisons.

The PA is demanding the release of Palestinians who were imprisoned before the signing of the Oslo Accords and permission to import weapons before its leaders agree to return to the negotiating table.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas, who met with Clinton in Paris last week, presented his demands to the US Administration and requested that Washington exert pressure on Israel to respond favorably.
