US Secretary of State John Kerry is arriving in the Middle East today to begin a fresh round of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
A State Department official said in Washington that Kerry would push the two sides to agree on a framework of core principles such as security‚ the future of Jerusalem and fate of refugees.
The spokesman hoped that such a framework would help guide the two sides toward a deal in April this year.
