Suleiman: Israel is not serious about peace


Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said Thursday that the Israeli government’s announcement of plans to build 1,600 new homes in disputed east Jerusalem confirms that there is no opportunity for peace.

“The policy of elusion from international pressure adopted by the government of the enemy is a sign that it is unprepared or unwilling to start serious negotiations with the Palestinians to achieve comprehensive peace in the region,” Suleiman said in a statement.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will not enter into indirect peace talks with Israel as planned, Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa said overnight Wednesday.

“The Palestinian president has decided that he does not intend to enter negotiations at this stage,” Moussa said at a press conference in Cairo.
