Ahead of Kerry's Visit Netanyahu Urges Palestinians to Negotiate Until Conflict Is Resolved

The prime minister says Israel's goal is not just to restart peace talks, but to keep them going until significant progress is made, while Economy Minister Naftali Bennett says the Israeli public does not expect its elected leaders to deal with peace talks.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday said he hopes the Palestinians are prepared to return to the negotiating table for direct talks with Israel without preconditions.
