Netanyahu says peace deal could take another year
In a radio interview Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said a deal with the Palestinians would take at least another year to negotiate, Reuters reports.
Netanyahu stressed that the current guidelines are an “American document of American positions.”
"I think (the current document) ... is a possible path toward moving the talks forward. It will take us at least a year to exhaust these negotiations but I can't say that the Palestinians will accept this document, and I also have not seen it yet," Netanyahu said.
The two sides have been unable thus far to agree on issues such as borders and Israeli settlements inside the West bank.
Netanyahu also said on Sunday that he is opposed to a settlement freeze.
