AMMAN, Jordan — A British Foreign Office minister said only direct Palestinian-Israeli negotiations can achieve peace.

Alistair Burt acknowledged direct talks that began in September and collapsed soon after might be difficult to revive now.

Nonetheless, Burt told reporters after meetings with Jordanian officials that direct negotiations are "most likely" to result in Palestinian statehood and guarantee Israel's security.
