Abbas believes the U.S. peace efforts fail

Abbas believes the U.S. peace efforts fail

 Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday, mengatakanupaya "very seriously" the U.S. to achieve a framework for peace negotiations with Israel have so far failed.

In a statement after talks in Paris this week with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Abbas told reporters,

"So far Americans can not put these ideas into a framework, though the effort was very serious."

French President Francois Hollande said after meeting with Abbas, he underlined the need to "reach an agreed framework for negotiations in a timely manner".

Abbas met with Kerry twice in Paris this week in what a U.S. official described the talks as "constructive".

The U.S. Minister spent months in an effort to persuade Israelis and Palestinians reach a framework that will guide the conversation toward a full peace agreement, but negotiations did not show many signs of progress, and they are blaming each other.

A Palestinian official who asked not to be named, said on Friday that proposed ideas Kerry in Paris could not be accepted "as a foundation for a framework agreement ... because it does not take into consideration the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people".
