Albright: Palestinians, Israel looking for excuse not to go forward with talks

Published: 04.06.14, 01:06 / Israel News

It appears as if both Israel and the Palestinians are looking for an excuse not to go forward with peace talks, former secretary of state Madeleine Albright told The Globe and Mail this week.

 

"The United States can only do so much. The United States cannot put a plan down. There has to be political will on the Israeli side and on the Palestinian side. So I think it’s a diversion," she said.

 

"It’s a chicken-and-egg thing ... because Mahmoud Abbas has basically said he won’t go if there’s not a release of these prisoners. I think it’s just putting an extra thing on the table," Albright, who was secretary of state from 1997 to 2001, added. (Ynetnews)
