Ramallah, Alray - A Palestinian official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that Israel insists on only discussing security issues on the ongoing peace negotiations, Chinese news agency reported.
The official said Israel had presented 17 points reflecting its position on the security arrangements. He added that in the course of the talks, a dispute broke out over the Palestinians' refusal to accept any Israeli military presence within the Palestinian state.
Israeli delegation demanded that crossings and borders with Jordan remains under Israeli control, in addition to the Jordan Valley. PA must keep alarming systems on the mountains of West Bank, media sources said.
The Palestinians rejected the proposal and said they wanted first to reach an agreement that the Palestinian state would be based on the 1967 lines and then discuss the stages of establishing that state.
