Palestinian affairs journalists working for the Israeli media decided Sunday not to cover the meeting between PA President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli politicians from Kadima and Labor in Ramallah.

The decision was taken by the Association for Palestinian Affairs Correspondents after representatives of the Geneva Initiative, who initiated the meeting with Abbas, allowed only one journalist from Haaretz to accompany them.

All the other journalists who requested to cover the meeting had initially been told by the Israeli organizers that no reporter would be accompanying the delegation to Ramallah.
