Palestinian Leaders Discussing Kerry Proposal
RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — The Palestinian leadership in the West Bank is discussing U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s latest efforts to relaunch peace talks with Israel.
Kerry has not publicized his plan to restart the talks, but a decision by the Arab League to support his proposals has raised speculation that the Palestinians will agree.
An announcement was expected later Thursday.
Kerry has been shuttling for months in search of a formula to allow resumption of talks after a nearly five-year break. Kerry, who is in neighboring Jordan, had a lengthy meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas this week.
Abbas was briefing top officials from the Palestine Liberation Organization Thursday on the latest proposals, the PLO said.
