AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry has won Arab League backing for his effort to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, raising hopes that the stalled negotiations could resume.
Kerry cited significant progress in narrowing gaps between the two sides, but he declined to elaborate.
On his sixth trip to the Middle East in as many months as America’s top diplomat, Kerry met today in Jordan with representatives of the Arab League and nine of its members that support an Arab-Israeli peace plan proposed by Saudi Arabia.
In a statement after the meeting, the Arab delegation endorsed Kerry’s initiative, saying his ideas “constitute a good ground and suitable environment for restarting the negotiations.”
Later, Kerry met with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and the two had a lengthy working dinner.
Kerry has spent hours with Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu trying to set the stage for a return to peace talks that foundered and collapsed in 2008.
