Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday that Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat "will not budge a nanometer" in his positions and approach toward peace talks with Israel. Erekat and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas have demanded that Israel halt settlement construction and set other preconditions to direct negotiations.

Speaking to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Netanyahu accused Erekat of breaking an agreement to not speak publicly about the talks taking place in Amman between the two sides, saying "We decided in advance that we would not talk about what happens in the talks." Israel, he asserted, has kept its side of the agreement.
