Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas says that US Secretary of State of State John Kerry's efforts were "extremely serious" but that he has not yet succeeded in creating an agreed to framework for continuation of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

After meeting with Kerry in Paris twice this past week, Abbas told the press on Friday: "So far the Americans have not been able to put these ideas into a framework, even if the efforts are extremely serious", AFP quoted the Palestinian leader as saying.
