Mike Herzog and Attorney Yitzhak Molcho, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's emissaries on the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, will leave for Washington Tuesday, to meet with the US' special envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell.

The three are expected to discuss ways to reignite the stalled peace process .

The meeting follows Netanyahu's meeting with US President Barack Obama and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during the UN General Assembly in New York last week.

Obama demanded Israel and the Palestinian Authority make some serious headway by mid October.

With the major hurdle of the US' demand to halt all settlement expansion out of the way, Israel and the US are expected to discuss the terms needed to resume talks.

Netanyahu said he was willing to negotiate sans preconditions, but qualified the statement by saying steps the likes of the PA recognizing Israel and the Jewish homeland, as well as normalization gestures by other Arab nations were a must.

Jerusalem sources said meeting Obama's deadline was possible if the PA and the Arab world would be willing to take confidence-building measures.
