Palestinian Authority officials said Wednesday that a fifth meeting between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators in Amman scheduled for later in the day would be the final meeting, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

The PA has come under heavy pressure from the Quartet to continue the talks but will not agree to do so, Ma'an cited unnamed Palestinian sources as saying.

PLO Executive Committee member Hanna Amirah blamed Israel for the Palestinian decision not to continue talks, saying that the Netanyahu government "does not seek at this stage to achieve any progress in the peace process with the Palestinian Authority," according to the report.

Meanwhile, Israeli officials said Tuesday they believe the Palestinians will continue the talks being held in Jordan beyond the January 26 Quartet deadline, which Israel contests. The Palestinians are unlikely to cut off talks, the officials said, because the move was not supported by European powers and other key international players.
