RAMALLAH, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Israeli chief negotiator Tzipi Livni and Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat are scheduled to meet again on Monday under U.S. sponsorship in Jerusalem as the Middle East peace process is still stalled, a senior official told Xinhua.
U.S. peace envoy to the Middle East Martin Indyk will also attend the meeting in Jerusalem later on Monday, said the official.
The meeting is the third within the last four days and the second meeting was held in Jerusalem on Sunday without achieving any breakthrough in the issue of long-term prisoners' release.
"There are still no changes in the Israeli position despite the U.S. efforts amid tensed ties between the two sides," said the official, adding that the three sides decided to hold another meeting on Monday.
Meanwhile, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper quoted a senior Israeli official as saying that the meeting on Sunday was positive "but the parties failed to overcome their differences."
The Israeli-Palestinian negotiations have been going through a severe crisis after Israel refused to release the last batch of prisoners in late March as part of an agreement to resume the peace talks, which are due to end in late April.
