Netanyahu offers to meet Palestinian President

Jerusalem:  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected a multilateral French peace initiative as he met his French counterpart on Monday, offering to hold direct talks with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas in Paris.
Netanyahu, who has repeatedly expressed his opposition to the French proposal reportedly mentioned that this initiative can still take place in Paris. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls is slated to visit Israel and the Palestinian territories to advance his country's plan to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.
Negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians have been at a standstill since a US-led initiative collapsed in April 2014.
