The Palestinian leadership will make a decision regarding peace with Israel after the meeting of the Middle East peace mediators Monday, President Mahmoud Abbas said Monday.

"The Palestinian side is waiting the decisions that would be taken by the Quartet and we will make our decisions accordingly," Abbas said.

The Quartet, which comprises the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations, is meeting in Washington Monday to assess the stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

The negotiations stopped when Israel resumed building settlements in the West Bank last year. The Palestinians decided to refer to the UN for a unilateral vote on the Palestinian state in September despite Israeli and American objection.
