Paris Mideast meeting 'pushes peace further away': Israel

AFP , Friday 3 Jun 2016

Israel's foreign minister said Friday that the international meeting in Paris aimed at reviving the moribund diplomatic process with the Palestinians will prove to have actually pushed peace further away.

"The international community accepted (Palestinian president) Mahmud Abbas's demand and enabled him to continue to evade direct and bilateral negotiations without preconditions," ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said in a statement. "The Paris meeting will go down in history as having only hardened Palestinian positions and pushed peace further away."
