US Secretary of State John Kerry met late Wednesday in London with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas for their first face-to-face talks since the peace process collapsed last month, US officials said. Abbas also meet with British Prime Minister David Cameron.
JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- The US administration is planning to present a proposal to resume the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians after the mid-term elections for Congress, slated for Tuesday, the Palestinian daily Al-Quds reported over the weekend.
The report came as State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki announced on Friday that a Palestinian delegation would arrive at the US capital for high-level talks on ways to move forward with the stalled peace talks and the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip.
The delegation, headed by PLO chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, is expected to meet with US Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday.
The two sides are scheduled to discuss ways of ending the recent upsurge in violence in east Jerusalem, a Palestinian Authority official said. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/landedpages/printarticle.aspx?id=380473" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
