Netanyahu: Palestinians keep on running away from talks

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu accused the Palestinians of running away from negotiations – “first with Barak and Olmert and then with me, when they were set up by Kerry. [Mahmoud] Abbas then ran to Hamas and then the UN with a demand that the world boycott Israel for refusing to negotiate.” The PM was speaking to visiting Czech Republic Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek in Jerusalem Monday, when he urged Israel to acquiesce to Palestinian demands. Netanyahu added that Israel is "ready to accept two states – a Jewish democratic state and a demilitarized Palestinian state,  achieved through negotiations."
