PM takes swipe at peace ini­tia­tive

Paris is to host an in­ter­na­tional meet­ing at the end of the month to dis­cuss mov­ing the peace process for­ward. But Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu said on Sun­day that di­rect ne­go­ti­a­tions, with­out pre­con­di­tions, are the best way to reach a fi­nal agree­ment and that “any other at­tempt only makes peace more re­mote and gives the Pales­tini­ans an es­cape hatch to avoid con­fronting the root of the con­flict.’’ Times of In­dia
