Israeli and Palestinian negotiators reportedly asked to hold another meeting to prevent the collapse of peace talks following a four-hour session.
The chief Palestinian and Israeli negotiators asked for the Monday meeting after the talks with the U.S. envoy to the peace negotiations, Martin Indyk, that broke up at about midnight.
Unnamed Palestinian officials told the French news agency AFP, “The crisis continues. Throughout the meeting, the Israelis threatened the Palestinians and no solution was found to the crisis.”
An Israeli official told Reuters that the Sunday meeting was “businesslike.”
The Knesset met in emergency session on Monday morning to discuss the lack of progress in the peace negotiations, according to Ynet.
The Palestinians and Israelis have been negotiating in a bid to extend the U.S.-brokered talks beyond their April 29 deadline.
