PA executive: Kerry wants Palestinian to recognize Jewish State

US Secretary of State John Kerry and PA President Mahmoud Abbas spoke about the Americans' desire for the Palestinians to recognize the State of Israel as the Jewish State, a senior Palestinian politician told Arab media. He also said the meeting between the two sides was difficult.


An executive member of the PLO, Yasser Abed Rabbo, said there was no progress in the talks, but there is serious debate. He said he doesn't think that in the next couple of days there will be an American offer for an agreement. (Elior Levy)
