U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned on Thursday that the Middle East peace talks were facing a “critical moment,” but he said the differences between Israeli and Palestinians is about the “process” and not the “fundamentals” on how to implement the final status agreement.
Negotiating teams in Jerusalem made progress in overnight talks that stretched until 4:00 am (0100 GMT), but “there is still a gap and that gap needs to close fairly soon,” Agence France-Presse quoted Kerry as telling reporters in Algeria.
He said the current disagreements were over “process” rather than “the fundamental substance of a final status agreement.”
If the two sides can’t find a way to continue talking, Kerry said, “it would be a tragedy for both of them.”
