the United States is expected to give the Palestinians a list of commitments due to Israel’s failure to include east Jerusalem in the second freeze agreement. They implied, however, that Washington would promise to intervene in the negotiations in a bid to reach a peace agreement within one year. The agreement itself is expected to be implemented in stages.
The sources added that the American commitments would include setting the Palestinian state’s borders within three months and solving the refugee problem, including compensation through an international fund comprised of most of the region’s countries (including Israel).
The sources also said that the American list of commitment would include financial and diplomatic aid in exchange for returning to the direct negotiations. They estimated that the talks would be resumed in early December.
