"Returning back to negotiations depends on two steps we asked the American side to agree on," Senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath told Ma'an on Sunday.

Speaking after US Secretary of State John Kerry's announcement on the renewal of peace talks, Shaath stated that only if the Americans agree to their two steps, the Palestinian Authority will "go to the next step."

According to Shaath, the next step is preliminary negotiations in Washington "to discuss the rules and the terms of direct negotiations."

"We will not go back to negotiations unless we get what we asked for," Shaath stated firmly.
