UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) - The Palestinians are ready to resume peace talks with Israel but have yet to see a willingness from the latter's new leadership, Palestinian National Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al Maliki said on Tuesday.
"Of course we are ready," al Maliki said when asked if the Palestinian Authority was ready to resume peace talks with Israel. "Is it possible? Well, it depends on the willingness on the other side. What we have heard so far from the Israeli leaders, [they] have shown they are not ready and they are not willing."
