Israeli and Palestinian negotiating teams set to meet in J'lem

Israeli and Palestinian negotiating teams are set to meet on Monday in Jerusalem for another round of peace talks. Led by Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Palestinian chief negotiator Ahmad Qurei (Abu Ala), the two sides are expected to discuss Israeli construction in east Jerusalem and settlement expansion. Jerusalem officials told Army Radio that the teams were hoping for a more productive meeting than the last round of talks, when the two sides were at odds over Israel's planned construction of some 300 new housing units in east Jerusalem's Har Homa.
