Beilin: Postpone Annapolis until negotiations progress

Meretz chairman Yossi Beilin has called to postpone the US-sponsored Annapolis peace parley until significant progress has been made with the Palestinians on a joint declaration of principles. Beilin said that if Annapolis "fails, there will be a heavy price to pay." Meanwhile, a senior Palestinian Authority official said Sunday that work on the joint statement was not progressing.
