PNA: No negotiations until Israel commits to two-state solution

Azzam al-Ahmad, an official of the Palestinian National Authority, has stated that there will be no negotations with Israel until the Israeli government publicly commits to the two-state solution. According to al-Ahmad "[t]he new Israeli administration has been constructed on an anti-peace basis, since they ignore the two-state solution". Furthermore, he rejected the ploy of pressuring the Palestinians to recognize Israel as 'a Jewish state' (in spite of the state having 20% Muslim, Christian and Druze population), stating that Netanyahu's demand "indicates the racism and extremism of the current Israeli administration, and proves that it does not seek peace."
