Netanyahu: Israel Will Not Withdraw to 1967 Lines

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected the Palestinians’ call for withdrawing to its 1967 lines as a precondition for resumption of Middle East peace talks.

Netanyahu, in a close door meeting on Sunday, declared that he has no intention of restarting talks with Palestinians if the precondition for such negotiation is withdrawal to the pre-Six Day War lines, the Jerusalem Post reported on Monday.

He stressed that Israel will not accept any precondition for resumption of talks with Palestinians.

Netanyahu said that the Palestinians’ current stance was that Israel should accept their demands and then the negotiations could take place.

"That is not going to happen," he said.

The UN have repeatedly called on Israel to withdraw from territories occupied in the 1967 war.
