State Department Denies Israel-PA Talks are Failing


The United States on Friday denied that the peace effort it has led between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) had failed, despite earlier reports that Israel had announced it would not go through with the fourth and final batch of terrorist releases, which was scheduled for Saturday night.

"Any reports that suggest the talks are off are inaccurate," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told journalists covering a visit to Saudi Arabia by Secretary of State Kerry and President Barack Obama, according to AFP.
