The article reports on the negotiations held by Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Sources revealed that Netanyahu proposed what he called Israel's security concept which involved keeping Israeli troops stationed along a swath of territory on the Palestinian side of Israel's West Bank barrier. However, Abbas thought that the whole proposal was offensive and stated in a position paper that Israel cede 98.2 percent of the West Bank.
