Palestine's Envoy Accuses Israeli Gov't of Attempts to Derail Peace Talks
VIENNA (Sputnik) — In April, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault announced that the ministers of 20 countries would take part in a meeting in Paris to relaunch the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Neither Israeli nor Palestinian officials will be attending the event.

"An official expert meeting is set for June 2 in Paris. The experts will discuss procedures, look into the final declaration that will be discussed at the ministerial level on June 3," Harfi said.

Palestinians seek diplomatic recognition for their independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, which is partially occupied by Israel, and the Gaza Strip. Israel has been building settlements on the occupied territories despite objection from the United Nations.
