A senior Israeli official said the government would not agree to the borders that the Palestinians are demanding for an independent state.


Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon said Israel would not let such a state be established within the regional boundaries that existed prior to the 1967 Mideast war.

Palestinians want east Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza - territories captured by Israel in that war. Danon's remarks were broadcast on Israel Radio Sunday.


His remarks came ahead of another visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry to the region this week.


The government has distanced itself from similar comments made by Danon last week.


Israel's chief negotiator Tzipi Livni told the station Sunday she was hopeful talks will resume with the Palestinians despite "elements" within the Israeli government.
