No date for new Israeli-Palestinian talks

    A month after Israel and the Palestinian Authority resumed direct negotiations, they already seem to have reached an impasse.

    The talks, that took place in a series of five meetings under Jordanian auspices in Amman with the participation of representatives of the Quartet, (the US, Russia, the EU and the UN), have foundered over the Palestinian demand for a more detailed proposal from Israel on the future borders of a Palestinian state.

    In the final meeting, last Wednesday, Prime Minister Netanyahu's representative, Yitzhak Molcho, presented a summary of Israel's position that included the principles of security arrangements and territorial exchanges that would allow most Israelis living across the Green Line to remain in their homes.

    No new date has been set for further talks. UN Secretary General, Ban ki-Moon, who is visiting this Israel this week, urged the two sides to return immediately to negotiations.

    The Israeli Embassy refused a request for comment.
