UNITED NATIONS - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas pledged to US President Barack Obama on Tuesday that the Palestinians will exert every effort possible to try to ensure peace talks with Israel are a success.

Obama and Abbas met on the fringes of the UN General Assembly days after a second Israeli serviceman was killed by suspected Palestinian gunmen as tensions rise in the West Bank despite a resumption of stalled US-brokered peace talks in July.
