Netanyahu after 2 hour meeting with Abbas: "I want a Peace agreement"

(Ynet).Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met in private Thursday, as part of the newly, Washington launched direct peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

The two reportedly agreed to meet once every two weeks, with the first meeting set to take place at Sharm el-Sheik.

Following the two-hour meeting in Washington, Netanyahu reportedly told his close advisors that what the negotiations needed now was "not a multitude of advisors, but leaders making decisions. The newspapers want headlines, but I want an agreement."
