Erekat responds: Netanyahu never gave Mitchell a chance

Responding to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's remarks blaming the Palestinians for US Mideast Envoy George Mitchell's resignation, former Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat in turn blamed Netanyahu, saying that he "never gave Ambassador Mitchell a chance," Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported Thursday.
Following the announcement of Mitchell's resignation by the White House on Saturday, Netanyahu blamed the PA's insistence on setting preconditions for torpedoing peace talks.
Directly responding to the allegation, Erekat bemoaned, "Netanyahu's statements would be amusing if the consequences of his actions weren't so tragic," Ma'an reported.
