MOSCOW, April 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Palestine’s top diplomat has noted the divergence of views with Israel.
“Palestine and Israel held about 20 sessions between July 29, 2013 and the middle of November 2013. Our disagreements became deeper,” Palestinian Ambassador to Russia Fayed Mustafa told a news conference on Monday.
“Two issues were on the agenda: one was related to security, and only on the eastern border - with Jordan. Security on the border with Palestine was not discussed,” he said.
“The other question that Israel is prepared to discuss is Palestine's recognition of Israel as 'the nation state of the Jewish people’. All other issues were rejected,” Mustafa said.
Under the existing agreements, the regular round of Palestinian-Israeli talks is scheduled to be over on April 29, he said.
