Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised a Palestinian delegation that met with him in Jerusalem Tuesday evening that he would send a letter to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in two weeks.

The document will be a response to a letter from Abbas which the Palestinian delegation delivered to Netanyahu.

Netanyahu and Abbas have not met since September 2010. On Tuesday, however, Netanyahu spoke with PA negotiator Saeb Erekat and the head of Palestinian intelligence Gen. Majad Faraj in Jerusalem.

After the meeting Netanyahu's office said that Israel was committed to peace. It added that it hoped the exchange of letters between the two leaders would advance the peace process.
