U.S Secretary of State "John Kerry" said concrete progress has been made in peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians, but said details won't be reveled . Kerry, who has made nine trips to the Middle East since March and helped launch nine-month direct talks between the two sides in July, said talking about any agreements could be counterproductive.
Kerry in an interview with ABC’s "This Week" said "I’m personally encouraged that very tough issues are beginning to take shape", adding "we’ve agreed not to be talking about what we’re doing because it just creates great expectations. It creates pressure. It creates opposition, in some cases. I think it’s much better for us to do exactly what we’ve been doing ... negotiate quietly and privately".
Kerry expressed optimism Sunday that this was "a different moment" for the conflict that could allow "a different set of choices" than in past efforts, saying "I think that the dynamics of the Middle East offer a different moment, the possibilities of peace with the Arab League, the realities of what might and might not stare people in the face if you don’t get an agreement, and hopefully, the leaders will seize this moment and at least move the ball forward somewhat ".
