Israel and Palestine to Restart Peace Talks

After meeting on Tuesday with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Palestinian envoy Saeb Erekat agreed to resume long-stalled direct peace talks that will “seek to give birth to an independent Palestinian state,” the Washington Post reported. “Each side has a stake in the other’s success, and everyone can benefit from the dividends of peace,” Kerry told the press.
