US says its envoy took part in Israeli-Palestinian meeting

The US State Department said on Sunday for the first time that the US envoy for Israeli-Palestinian peace had taken part in a meeting between the two parties since negotiations resumed in late July, but declined to say when or whether any progress was made.

 

"Israeli and Palestinian delegations have been meeting continuously since final status negotiations resumed on July 29," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a brief written statement. (Reuters)
