He stated that the Israeli leadership is not interested in any real progress in political talks, in addition to its ongoing construction and expansion of its illegal colonies.
The official also denied reports claiming that Foreign Ministers from Germany, Canada and New Zealand have delivered messages from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “expressing willingness to meet President Mahmoud Abbas.”
He added that the Palestinian leadership is not seeking “media talks,’ false statements and lies that aim at creating fake developments in the political situation.’
