WASHINGTON – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday called for an immediate resumption of peace talks with Palestinians and pledged more steps to improve economic conditions in Palestinian areas.
Netanyahu reiterated to an assembly of Jewish groups his view that peace negotiations should begin with no preconditions. He made no new proposals on constraining Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
Palestinian officials insist that Israel freeze settlement activity before peace talks resume.
He also said Israel is willing to make "great concessions for peace," without sacrificing its security.
Netanyahu was scheduled to hold a private meeting this evening at the White House with President Barack Obama.
