JNS.org Meretz Party Chairwoman Zehava Gal-On met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Monday to discuss the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations.

Abbas threatened to halt negotiations if the U.S.-drafted framework agreement, expected to be revealed this month, does not satisfy the Palestinian demands. “If the framework agreement does not provide solutions to the core issues, I will not extend negotiations. I will lay my keys on the table and turn to international organizations,” Abbas said, Israel Hayom reported.

“The only chance we have to extend talks is if Netanyahu declares a settlement construction freeze and another wave of Palestinian prisoners is released, this time with women, children and administrative prisoners,” he said.
