Netanyahu Signals Willingness to Restart Peace Talks

Israel has signaled a willingness to restart stalled peace talks with Palestinians ahead of the U.N. resolution on Palestinian statehood in September, Reuters reported on Tuesday.

"In order to restart the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and facilitate the restarting of direct talks, Israel has been willing to accept a package that includes a formula on borders," an official told Reuters, perhaps including borders "that would be difficult for Israel to accept.”

"A part of the package would mean [Israel] being recognized as a Jewish state" by the Palestinians, the official said.

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been speaking to Middle Eastern leaders on the issue, and he told a closed-door session of a parliamentary committee that he was "willing to accept working with the international community” to restart peace talks, Reuters reported.  

President Obama has previously proposed that Israel consider pulling back to its 1967 borders, and Israeli news outlets have suggested that Netanyahu is giving new consideration to Obama's proposal. But the official told Reuters that Netanyahu "has been clear that Israel will not return to the 4th of June 1967 borders," or to pre-1967 lines.

Peace talks stalled last September, after a dispute over Jewish settlement expansion. Pro-settlement parties dominate Netanyahu’s government.
