Benjamin Netanyahu has attached stringent conditions to the talks

Netanyahu signals new Palestinian state talks

A government official tentatively confirmed the Channel 2 report, saying that Mr Netanyahu was willing to restart talks based on a US proposal, but cautioned that there were conditions attached to the offer.

The Palestinians would be expected in return to drop their statehood bid at the United Nations scheduled for September, and recognise Israel as a Jewish state. The Palestinians have repeatedly rejected the latter condition, saying that to do so would prevent the return of refugees and threaten the rights of the Arab minority living in Israel.

The Palestinians said they had not received an offer from Israel.

Comment by Adamantine:

This is simply a ploy by Israel to get the UN bid dropped.

I think the Palestinians will reject it.
