Palestine says yes to talks

Palestinian leaders said representatives would join indirect peace talks with Israel yesterday as the American envoy met prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.

George Mitchell has applied intense pressure on both sides to resume talks, broken off a year ago.

Mr Mitchell will shuttle between the two sides during four months of "proximity" talks in which the Israelis and Palestinians will not meet directly.
