The Palestinian president will invite Israeli politicians to the West Bank to try to make sure peacemaking is on the new government's agenda, a senior official said Thursday, as a top Israeli hard-liner proposed sidelining the polarizing issue.
"We want the summit to remove the [economic] siege and the checkpoints that suffocated the lives of the Palestinian people," said Yasser Abed Rabbo, a top official in Mr. Abbas" administration.
Mr. Rabbo said the Palestinian leader would seek a resumption of peace talks aimed at establishing a Palestinian state, but he warned that a summit with no concrete results was liable to cause more harm than good, the Associated Press reported.
