IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY November 8th 2016: ISRAEL REFUSES TO TAKE PART IN FRENCH-LED PEACE CONFERENCE

Israel on Monday reiterated its firm opposition to a French plan to hold an international conference before the end of the year to restart long-stalled peace efforts with the Palestinians…
 
“It was made clear to the French envoy that Israel will not participate in any international conference convened contrary to its position.”
 
The statement added that “promoting such a conference will make the possibility of advancing the peace process much less likely since it will allow (Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas) and the Palestinian Authority to continue avoiding the decision to enter into direct negotiations without preconditions.
 
The Palestinians strongly support France’s international approach, saying years of negotiations with the Israelis have not ended the occupation.”
