Kerry and Abbas to discuss peace talks in London

US Secretary of State John Kerry will meet Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in London on Wednesday, a Palestinian official said, weeks after Middle East peace talks collapsed.

 

"The meeting will discuss a possible resumption of negotiations with Israel," the official told AFP, requesting anonymity.

 

But Kerry's spokeswoman denied there were any plans for the US top diplomat to hold talks with the Palestinian leader during a scheduled trip to London this week.
