JNS.orgA deal in Israeli-Palestinian Authority conflict negotiations is not close, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a Likud party meeting on Monday.

“We are not standing before a permanent accord. We have a set of specific terms that have yet to be met in the negotiations. … We are still not there, not even walking down that hall,” he said,Israel Hayom reported.

“Only once Israel’s terms are met will there be a peace deal,” Netanyahu added.

Netanyahu’s comments present a stark contrast to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s remark last week that¬†Israel and the Palestinians are “closer than they’ve been in years” to achieving a peace agreement.
