Palestinian-Israeli Talks Here
Officials from Israel’s Labor Party and the ruling Palestinian party Fatah met here in Stockholm Wednesday, to discuss the future of the Gaza Strip after the Israeli pull-out.
Palestinian Deputy Prime Minister Nabil Shaath and Israeli cabinet minister Haim Ramon led the two delegations.
The talks are being held at the headquarters of the Swedish Social Democrat party, which also took part. A similar meeting between the three groups was held in January last year.
The delegations were representing political groups, rather than their governments.
Speaking afterwards, the Israeli Labor Party representative said Israel needs to withdraw from most parts of the West Bank before a comprehensive peace settlement with the Palestinians can be reached.
