After more than three years of stalemate, Israel and Palestinians have agreed to sit down to discuss resuming peace talks, US Secretary of State John Kerry said.
Speaking in Jordan he said the agreement was still being formalised, but that there were plans to meet next week for initial talks.
We have reached an agreement that establishes a basis for resuming direct final status negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis. The agreement is still in the process of being formalized.
So far President Obama has watched from the sidelines. Is he ready to engage; to use his own authority, even if that risks failure?
For the first time in three years, both sides have agreed to sit down to discuss resuming peace negotiations, John Kerry said.
