Bibi Proposes Biweekly Meetings With Abbas

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proposed to the U.S. administration on Thursday that he hold a face-to-face meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas every two weeks to try to forge covert understandings and set principles to solve every issue.

After the principles are determined, small negotiation teams would hammer out the details and put the understandings into writing. Netanyahu said in a meeting to prepare for the Washington summit that ?serious negotiations in the Middle East mean only direct, quiet and consecutive talks between the two leaders on the key issues.?

Netanyahu on Thursday evening began forming Israel?s negotiating team for the direct peace negotiations set to commence next week, the Prime Minister?s Office announced.
