Senior Palestinian official Sha'ath says no progress in peace talks

The last three rounds of talks between Israel and the Palestinians did not achieve any progress, Nabil Sha'ath, member of the Fatah Central Committee, said Sunday.
"The Palestinian side held a number of negotiating sessions with the Israeli side in order to achieve progress, but Israel did not present anything positive," Sha'ath told the Al-Resalah news website.
He said that Israel's policy on the ground was "in complete contradiction of the principles of the peace process." He accused Israel of pursuing settlement construction and the "Judaization" of Jerusalem.
Sha'ath said that despite the lack of progress the Palestinian Authority was determined to continue with the peace talks while not ruling out the possibility of going to international agencies and forums if the negotiations fail.
Sha'ath also complained about the absence of international pressure on Israel.
