As Israeli and Palestinian negotiators meet with US officials to prevent the latest round of peace talks from collapsing, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned negotiations would not continue “at any price.” Offering his first public comments over faltering US-brokered peace talks on Sunday, Netanyahu further warned that Israel would not sit idly by if Palestinians attempted to move towards statehood unilaterally.  “Unilateral steps by the Palestinians will be answered with unilateral steps on our part,” YNet News cites Netanyahu as saying at a weekly cabinet address on Sunday. The Israeli PM had earlier said that “the Palestinians will get a state only though direct negotiations, and not through empty declarations, nor through unilateral actions that will only keep the peace agreement further away.” More
