JERUSALEM (AP) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says his new government will soon present its agenda on Mideast peace talks and defense issues.

Speaking at his first Cabinet meeting Sunday, Netanyahu said he will complete his “policy guidelines” for peace and security in the coming weeks. He also says he will appoint an inner Cabinet to deal with defense and diplomacy.

Netanyahu has sent mixed signals since taking office last week. In a speech to parliament, he pledged to pursue a full peace with the Palestinians and Arab world. But he gave few details of his vision for peace. His hard-line foreign minister then ruffled diplomatic feathers when he dismissed as meaningless the past year of U.S.-led peace negotiations and said concessions to the Palestinians only invite war.
