The Palestinian Authority will not accept a Palestinian state that does not include the Jordan Valley, Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said on Wednesday.

The Palestinian Authority will not accept a Palestinian state that does not include the Jordan Valley, Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said on Wednesday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who toured the Jordan Valley on Tuesday, said Israel would keep its troops along the eastern border with the West Bank.

"The Jordan Valley is an integral part of Palestine that has been occupied since 1967, as is East Jerusalem," Fayyad told reporters.

The Palestinians seek international recognition for an independent state based on pre-1967 borders.

Direct talks between the Israelis and Palestinians, which resumed last September after a 20-month standoff, collapsed in December after Israel refused to stop construction in the occupied West Bank.
