US Secretary of State John Kerry said concrete progress has been made in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, but parties remain to keep a general silence on the issue in order to suppress "pressure," great expectations" and "opposition".
Speaking in an interview aired Sunday on ABC's "This Week," Kerry said that the current round of ongoing talks, which resumed in July, have come at a "different moment" from past efforts, which he hopes leaders will seize to progress work on the ground.
"I think what’s happening in the region, I think the fact of all the work that’s been done before has laid a pathway people can build on," he said. "I think there are many options that have been vetted before that leave you a different set of choices."
