RAMALLAH, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Israeli and Palestinian peace negotiation teams are to hold a new round of talks on Tuesday, according to Israel Radio, without specifying the venue of the meeting.
The radio quoted well-informed Israeli sources as saying that the new round of peace talks will be held between the chiefs of the two negotiations teams -- Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat and Israeli Minister of Justice Tzipi Livni.
The sources said that the Tuesday meeting will be a continuation to a meeting held on Saturday in Jerusalem. The two teams refrained from giving press statements to reporters.
Meanwhile, well-informed Palestinian sources closed to the negotiations told Xinhua that the two sides agreed to intensify their talks by holding at least two meetings every week. The understanding was made upon a U.S. request in condition to be away from the mass media.
Earlier on Sunday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said in a meeting with his Fatah Party's Revolutionary Council that he only agreed to resume the talks with Israel after he got the U.S. guarantees.
He said the talks with Israel is still based on previewing the two sides stances and positions, with the Israeli side presenting its positions and the Palestinian side making its comments.
