Kerry sees progress in Mideast peace talks

Jun 30 2013, 10:12am CDT | by

Ramallah, June 30 (IANS) US Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday said progress was made in his efforts to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Ramallah, June 30 — US Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday said progress was made in his efforts to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Kerry has been in the region since Thursday for discussions with Palestinian and Israeli leaders. He is on his fifth visit to the region since he began his task in March, Xinhua reported.

However, after a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah Sunday, Kerry said there were some matters that needed to be settled first to complete the progress.

Kerry promised to reveal more details.

Negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians stopped in 2010 over a dispute on Israel's settlement building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said Kerry's meeting with Abbas was "positive and thorough".

He said the Palestinians were cooperating positively with Kerry, and accused Israel of "putting obstacles on the way of peace", referring to Israel's plans to build 930 new settler homes in an East Jerusalem settlement.

"We do not have conditions to resume the negotiations," Erekat said.

"When we call for the principle of the two-state solution, stopping the settlements and releasing the old prisoners, we are talking about Israeli commitments, not Palestinian conditions," he said.

The Nuclear Option: Hillary Clinton — A Woman of No Convictions

Aug 18 2014 9:34am CDT | Source: Big Government

The rank spectacle of ex-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton suddenly turning on her commander in chief and former boss to shiv him in the back over the burning ruins she helped make of the Middle East is staggering to behold. The brassiness, dishonesty and shamelessness as she slides into yet another presidential campaign season is enough to choke that old Arkansas draft mule of a husband she hitched her career to. The scheming calculation of it all would make Lady Macbeth t ...
