Paris Mideast summit 'distances peace' prospects: Israel

JERUSALEM, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 16th Jan, 2017 ) : Israel criticised Sunday's middle East peace conference in Paris as a "useless" event, saying it would distance prospects of reaching a peace agreement with the Palestinians. "International conferences and UN resolutions only distance peace (prospects) since they encourage the Palestinians to continue to refuse direct talks with Israel," the foreign ministry said.
