(Worthy News) - Representatives of the Middle East Quartet will visit the region next week to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders and push forward with a renewed efforts to revive the stalled peace process.
Envoys from the United States, the European Union, the United Nations and Russia will hold direct talks with officials in Jerusalem and Ramallah and explore "concrete actions" that are "consistent with prior agreements" in order to facilitate a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the group said.
The meetings come after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in an address to the United Nations General Assembly last week that the PA would cease to abide by agreements signed with Israel, claiming Israel had shown that it, too, was no longer committed to them. [ Source ]
