Israelis, Palestinians agree to continue talks in Jordan
Israel and the Palestinians have agreed to hold a "series of talks" in Jordan, Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said Tuesday, DPA reported.
He said the first face-to-face Israeli-Palestinian meeting in more than 15 months, hosted by the Jordanians, had been "positive."
The continuation of direct talks is unexpected, since the Palestinians had previously insisted on an Israeli freeze on settlement construction in East Jerusalem and the West Bank as a pre-condition to restart talks. Israel had refused the demand.
