Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet that he will agree to a 13 percent further West Bank redeployment, but only if the Palestinian Authority lives up to already-signed commitments, including the annulment of anti-Israel portions of the Palestinian Covenant. Little progress is expected in the negotiations this week, given Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat’s plans to attend a summit meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement in South Africa.
