Israel Lodges Complaint with Washington over Palestinian Peace Talk Leaks


martin-indykIsraeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s envoy to the peace talks, Isaac Molho, has called his U.S. counterpart, Martin Indyk, to complain that numerous media leaks by Palestinians “violated all the agreements” made with the U.S. in July when both parties promised not to report the contents, or even the dates, of their meetings to the media, an Israeli official said.

An Israeli official said that the leaks, especially about an Israeli proposal to set up a Palestinian state within temporary borders, were incorrect. “The Palestinian side not only leaks, but leaks wrong,” he said. “It’s a regular pattern of the Palestinians….They leak that there’s no progress in order to increase international pressure on Israel.”
