USA tries to rescue negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians in freefall

Israel has approved the construction of 708 homes in occupied territory. Meanwhile, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas signed the accession of Palestine to 15 UN treaties, which had been delayed as a gesture of goodwill on the negotiations Tuesday. Discouragement and weighs a lot, but the U.S. has not lost hope. On Wednesday, the State Department has issued a statement in which he criticized the “unnecessary steps” given by both Israelis and Palestinians in recent days.
