Netanyahu, Mitchell Meet in Jerusalem

[Jerusalem Post] Herb Keinon - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Sunday in Jerusalem with U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell to discuss the restart of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. They also met on Friday. Netanyahu's envoy Yitzhak Molcho, as well as Defense Minister Ehud Barak's chief of staff Michael Herzog, will travel to Washington later this week to continue the discussions. The U.S. has so far failed to get the Arab world, especially Saudi Arabia, to commit to normalization gestures to Israel as part of a package that would lead to a relaunch of negotiations. Netanyahu has said that any moratorium on settlement construction needed to be met by gestures from the Arab world.
