U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday met Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas in New York, where the two discussed the two-state solution.
The Secretary and President Abbas discussed regional challenges and constructive ideas for the way forward to support our shared goal of a two-state solution, said State Department spokesman John Kirby.
Kerry stressed the United States commitment to this issue and his concern over trends on the ground, including the recent surge in violence and settlement activity, added Kirby, who said the two agreed on the importance of continuing to work with key partners to advance the prospects for peace while opposing all efforts that would undermine that goal.
The meeting between Kerry and Abbas comes amid a renewed push for Israel and the PA to renew peace talks which have been stalled since 2014.
The Russian Foreign Ministry recently announced that Abbas and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had agreed to meet in Moscow to renew final status talks, though no date has been set for a meeting between the two leaders.

It could become an institution, and if successful could be done in other Jewish and Arab towns with empty stretches between, and would certainly advance peace better and more surely than yet another pointless conference between Bibi, Abbas, and the horse's ass, with their tunnel vision fantasy of a two-state "solution".
I want to know why Kerry wants to create a Jew free state of terrorist .
“I want to know why Kerry wants to create a Jew free state of terrorist .”
He’s an islamist facilitator with a lot of State power at his behest.
It’s pointless. Abbas will never be able to rally majority Pali support for a two state solution regardless of the terms. Not even Arafart would pull the trigger on one back in 2000.
Israel and Jordan was the two state solution.
Two empty suits talking to each other.
It’s not pointless. The whole idea is to lean on Israel at the Saudis’ behest, so they have some Islamic street cred. But if you think the goal is piece in our time, then of course it’s pointless. But even looking at the real point of this little exercise, it’s not a point that I care to see carried out. The Saudis can go f@#$ themselves.
Desperation- Kerry/Obama want a legacy.
(Syria cease fire?)
I’m sorry, but I’m beginning to think Hillary will have problems pulling even *two* states...
A couple of Morons...Kerry probably had to slip the terrorist a couple hundred million just to show up...At least they are keeping the idea alive for public consumption...
Obama is going to try one last time to force through an agreement between Israel and the Pali’s before he is out of office. Bibi will play rope-a-dope and stall until Obama is gone.
I assume that the two states are USA and Palestine, since those two jokers represent those poor pitiful countries. We already have millions of muzloids flooding into this country. And millions of Jews in NYC as well. It’s Kumbaya time. What a bunch of crap!
“Israel and Jordan was the two state solution.”
Bingo! Wow truth hurts. We have a winner. Two-thirds of the mandate given to the Arabs, along with the rule of a Saudi Prince.
Seems like enough for me.
It’s a national disgrace that Kerry holds any government position.
Mean while, back in the real world, he’s been cleaning houses for years, and his father as well (30 years) and there is not one slit throat between them in all that time. Everyone knows and likes this family, and I don’t think they are about to up and join Hamas any time soon. You live in America, and if you aren’t living in one fantasy, you’re living in another. I live in Gush Etzion, and the death and destruction are not something that happens on TV here, but something real. And there’s a lot else that does not happen on TV, too.
He might be fit to replace Captain Kangaroo. Just tell him it’s a military command. The kids won’t notice the difference.
