Saeb Erekat: U.S. Promised Israel Will Free 30 Prisoners by End of March

Palestinian chief negotiator, back from Washington, says no draft of the framework agreement has been issued.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said on Sunday, after returning from a visit to the United States, that the Palestinians received a commitment from the Americans that Israel will on March 29 release 30 Palestinian prisoners serving time in Israeli prisons, the fourth and final stage in the release of long-time prisoners who were convicted before the 1993 Oslo Accords.
