Peace talks fall short

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday said: ‘Peace and negotiations are our strategic choice’ but fell short of announcing a resumption of peace talks his government cut off after an upsurge in fighting between Israel and Hamas-ruled Gaza.

Abbas made his comments in a joint press conference with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who expressed hope of ‘negotiations restarting as soon as possible.’
