Palestinians rule out extending peace talks

Palestinian Chief negotiator "Saeb Erakat" said that  Palestinian leaders ruled out the possibility of extending peace talks with Israel beyond their nine-month timeframe.

Erakat told the official Voice of Palestine radio station "we turn down any extension", adding he said that if we reach an agreement on all final status issues, we could continue to discuss the details.

At a dinner with journalists on Wednesday, Erakat had raised the possibility of talks being prolonged for up to a year if parties agree on key issues by the time the current talks wrap up on April 29.

 U.S State Department welcomed his statement, while saying the nine-month schedule still remained in place.
