London-based Arabic language newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported Saturday that peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians will be renewed at the end of April, according to Israel Radio.
The report comes despite declarations by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Wednesday that Israel was changing its policies on the peace process and was not bound by commitments it made at a U.S.-sponsored conference to pursue creation of a Palestinian state.
Asharq al-Awsat also reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will visit Egypt before the renewal of talks with the Palestinians.
Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hosem Zaki said he does not know about preparations for Netanyahu's visit.
