Read more @: Kerry says Israel-Palestine talks may resume - Middle East - Al Jazeera Englishsrael and Palestine could be ready to re-launch peace talks after a stalemate that has lasted almost three years, US Secretary of State John Kerry has said.
Speaking on Friday after days of meetings with both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Kerry said the groundwork had been laid for the resumption of talks.
"We have reached an agreement that establishes a basis for resuming direct final status negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis," he told reporters in Jordan.
Al Jazeera's Rosiland Jordan, reporting from Washington, said the fact Kerry had two meetings with Abbas, the second of which was not expected to take place, could indicate a change in policy had been agreed.
Please start these peace talks up again. Im glad they seem to be moving forward. Hopefully something doesnt **** this up again. I know a lot of far right parties in Israel are calling this a farce because they negotiate based on 67 lines, but hopefully we can move past this and make some headway.
