Kerry trying to build support for new Israel peace talks

Source: Washington Post

Secretary of State John F. Kerry worked Monday to build support for new Arab-Israeli peace talks that would establish an independent Palestinian state and settle many other old Mideast grievances.

Putting it back on the table is meant to galvanize Arab support and draw in Muslim partner Turkey, but it is not clear how much of the original document could be a basis for new talks.

1. Every SoS trys to broker

long term peace and compromise. If a US SoS would broker peace there, both the President and the SoS would seal a pretty impressive legacy..
