Abu Zuhri said in a statement on Tuesday that the “amicable meeting” represented a kind of normalization of relations at a time the Israeli occupation authorities were escalating attacks on the Palestinian land and holy shrines.

After the meeting, Yasser Abed Rabbo, a Fatah central committee member, declared that the PA is ready to take unprecedented steps to resume the peace process with the Israeli authorities.

He said that the latest tour of the US secretary of state John Kerry in the region had left positive impressions, adding, however, that both parties (Israelis and Palestinians) should be more flexible in order to resume their negotiations.
