RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas met with Israeli Member of the Knesset Zahava Gal-On in Ramallah, the official Wafa news agency reported.

PLO Central Committee Member Muhammad al-Madani said in a news conference that the meeting focused on peace negotiations and possible repercussions in talks failed, the Wafa report said.

Al-Madani said that the PA was hopeful for upcoming meetings between Abbas and US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.

"We fully trust Israeli parties that support peace," he said.

However, if negotiations fail, "we will go into the unknown."

Speaking at the news conference, Gal-On reiterated her support for the two-state solution, praising efforts exerted by both sides to overcome obstacles and reach a framework agreement.

Zahava is the leading member of Meretz, a left-wing Israeli Zionist political party.
