The resumption of Middle East peace talks requires a full Israeli settlement freeze in the West Bank, chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat told AFP on Saturday.

"A resumption of peace talks requires the complete halt of settlements," Erakat said a day after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged both sides to revive peace talks "without preconditions."

Erakat also said negotiations should be picked up from the point they were left when they broke down in December 2008.
