Two weeks after the Quartet issued a proposal for renewing Israeli-Palestinian talks, and 14 days before the talks – under that proposal – are to begin, Quartet representatives will meet Sunday in Brussels to discuss how to move forward.

Unlike the meeting at the UN on September 23 that was attended by the so-called “Quartet principals” – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and Quartet envoy Tony Blair – this meeting will be at the level of Middle East envoys.

The US is expected to be represented by David Hale; the EU by Helga Schmid; Russia by Mikhail Margelov; and the UN by Robert Serry.
