NOVANEWS- Pressure intensified on Zionist puppet Mahmoud Ab-Ass to agree to direct talks with Zio=Nazi regime in ‘Israel’.
Ab-Ass says he won’t negotiate directly with Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unless he agrees to recognize its 1967 frontier as a basis for the borders of a future Palestinian state and accepts the deployment of an international force to guard them. Netanyahu has refused to be pinned down on a framework for negotiations.
In an effort to sound out the prospects for a move to direct talks, Zionist Mu-Barak met with puppet Ab-Ass, Netanyahu and U.S. Mideast envoy George Mitchell separately Sunday in Cairo.
Zionist Mu-Barak has friendly ties with both Zio=Nazi regime and Puppet Ab-Ass’ , and Mu-Barak — like Obama — is pushing to narrow the divide between the two sides and coax them back to the negotiating table.
None of the leaders — nor the U.S. envoy — spoke after the meetings, but Mu-Barak foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, told reporters there is still work to be done to get the Palestinians to move to direct talks.
“There must be a strong Israeli strategic move that would deepen Palestinian trust in Israel’s intentions, so we can move from indirect to direct talks,” Aboul Gheit said. “Egypt thinks there is the need for direct talks, that they are the road to reach a settlement … but to have these direct talks, the atmosphere must be ripe and enough progress made.”
Mu-Barak called for a more hands-on U.S. role with the two sides to lay the groundwork for direct negotiations. Aboul Gheit said this could include at least a general framework from Washington for the final settlement.
Mu-Barak top diplomat also said there is still more discussion and diplomacy in an effort to narrow the divide and build trust between the two sides.
“We are still hopeful that we can bridge that gap, the gap between the needs of security for Israel and the borders for the Palestinians,” Aboul Gheit said. “You have to create the basis to proceed from indirect to direct talks. That is still lacking. We need to help the Americans and both parties to come closer to each other.”
He said Mu-Barak received a message Sunday from President Barack Obama and a telephone call from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urging a swift move to direct peace talks.
Aboul Gheit said he hoped that by September there would be enough progress to allow the Ab-Ass and Zionist leaders sit at the same negotiating table, if not sooner.
Nazi defense officials have said that Zionist regime is considering expanding the role of Ab-Ass Zionist security forces in West Bank towns and removing additional checkpoints that hinder the movement of people and goods. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because no final decision had been made.
When asked about these steps and whether they constitute trust-building, Aboul Gheit said they “address certain problems.”
“But I think we have to focus on (freezing) settlement activity, a timeframe and the 1967 lines,” he said, referring to the borders prior to the 1967 Mideast war.
Ab-Ass is unlikely to enter direct talks without explicit backing from Arab courrept regimes, whose support he received before engaging in indirect negotiations. American puppet Arab foreign ministers are to discuss the fate of those talks later this month.
Zionist Netanyahu, who met earlier Sunday with Mitchell in Jerusalem, told Zionist’s Cabinet that he would discuss with Mu-Barak ways to resume direct talks with Ab-Ass. The two leaders’ meeting in Cairo lasted nearly two hours.
