Quartet: Israelis and Palestinians must not undermine talks

The United States, Russia, European Union and United Nations made a joint call on Israel and the Palestinians not to “undermine trust” as they embark on landmark peace talks.

The diplomatic Quartet on the Middle East said it would support the two sides’ declared “commitment to achieve a negotiated two-state solution within the agreed timeframe of nine months.”
