The Palestinian Authority has accepted an offer Israel made to it in the Taba talks six years ago, a senior Palestinian official told Israel Radio early Friday morning. The source added that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas that a draft agreement made during the talks would be used as a basis for negotiations. The official, a member of a current team of Palestinian negotiators, told Israel Radio that although the differences between Olmert and Abbas were slim, the Israeli team was hesitant and cautious about arriving at an agreement.
