"For the past year and a half, I’ve been trying to have direct meetings, without a predetermined agenda, with the Palestinian Authority. We have to have patience. Of course, we won’t need to wait for many months or many years. I believe that with some patience you will see results.
What is becoming clear is that in the coming days we are moving toward holding negotiations, without preconditions, I hope in the very near future. We are ready to go to Cairo, Washington, ready to go anywhere to get this process moving."
- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
