The Palestinians lost confidence in the United States as a sponsor of the negotiations last month, as it vetoed an Arab draft resolution calling for Israel to halt settlement activities.

The Palestinian leadership relies on the Quartet of Middle East peace to put more pressure on Israel. The Quartet, which comprises the United States, European Union, Russia and the United Nations, will meet in Paris on March 15.

Fayyad also called for an end to Israeli army raids on the West Bank cities and villages that are governed by the PNA.

Responding to reports that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was preparing a new plan for peace, Fayyad said that 17 years have passed since Oslo accords and all final-status issues were looked into, so "there is no need for new peace initiatives." Now, the need is for "a real political will to reach a final peace deal," Fayyad added.
