Palestinian leader: Talks with Israel over

By KARIN LAUB
Associated Press

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) -- A low-level dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians about a future border has ended without any breakthrough, the Palestinian president said Wednesday, reflecting the impasse plaguing the negotiations for at least three years.

President Mahmoud Abbas said he would consult with Arab allies next week to figure out how to proceed now. While frustrated with the lack of progress, Abbas is under pressure to extend the Jordanian-mediated exploratory talks, which the international community hopes will lead to a resumption of long-stalled formal negotiations on establishing a Palestinian state.

Israel said Wednesday it's willing to continue the dialogue. Abbas didn't close the door to continued meetings, saying he'll decide after consultations with the Arab League on Feb. 4.

A Palestinian walkout could cost Abbas international sympathy at a time when he seeks global recognition of a state of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, the territories Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war.

Not in my lifetime anyway.

3. The talks are over for because they're supposed to be the deadline set by the Quartet is 1/26
the headline would suggest that the Palestinians walked out which is untrue

5. I did not get that from the headline, only that he was announcing a fact, regardless of
who or why.

7. Any "spin" is in the mind of the reader. The headline does not impute fault.
