KUWAIT (Reuters) - Israeli and Palestinian leaders are both committed to reviving peace talks, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday.
"Both of them have indicated a seriousness of purpose," he said, referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Speaking at a news conference in Kuwait with Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled al-Sabah, Kerry said he did not want to set any deadlines but emphasized there needs to be progress before the U.N. General Assembly in September.
