Netanyahu Slated to Present Security Arrangements to Fayyad
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to send the Palestinian Authority a letter outlining Israel’s security demands going into peace negotiations that will contain security arrangements the Palestinians refused to hear two months ago from Israeli representatives in Jordan.
The letter, which Netanyahu is set to deliver to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas next week via Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, will present Israel’s version of security arrangements in a final-status agreement with the Palestinians, reported Israel Hayom.
Netanyhau spokesman Ofir Gendelman said in a statement that the Israeli premier would meet with Fayyad. The meeting is set to take place after Passover, which ends April 13 in Israel. According to French news agency AFP, Palestinian officials confirmed the meeting and said Fayyad would deliver a letter from Abbas to Netanyahu about the stalled peace process.
