US Secretary of State John Kerry confirmed on Friday that Martin Indyk was leaving his post as top US envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

Kerry praised Indyk and thanked him for his services.



“Ambassador Indyk has invested decades of his extraordinary career to the mission of helping Israelis and Palestinians achieve a lasting peace. It's the cause of Martin's career, and I'm grateful for the wisdom and insight he's brought to our collective efforts," Secretary Kerry noted.

"Martin's simply  invaluable, a terrific partner and friend, and he played a vital role in the progress that was made in the negotiations. He'll continue to work for peace, and as we've all said many times, the United States remains committed not just to the cause of peace, but to resuming the process when the parties find a path back to serious negotiations. I am very grateful to Martin for his indefatigable efforts and creativity, and I look forward to continue working closely with him."
