Palestinian negotiator Erekat: It's time for deeds from both sides

Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat on Wednesday cautiously welcomed an earlier promise by Prime Minister-designate Binyamin Netanyahu to resume peace talks, but said the new government must commit to establishing a Palestinian state. "Any Israeli government that accepts the two-state solution, negotiates with us on all core issues without exception, and agrees to stop settlement activity ... will be a partner," he said. "It's time for deeds from both sides as far as their commitments are concerned, not words."
