The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Friday issued a statement welcoming the announcement that Israel-Palestinian direct talks will resume in September. 

"Today’s announcement that Israel and the Palestinians will begin direct talks is a welcome development. Progress in Israeli-Palestinian relations has always only resulted from direct face-to-face negotiations,"  Robert G. Sugarman, ADL National Chair and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director said in the statement.

"The Government of Israel has made clear its commitment to a negotiated agreement, and has made numerous gestures to the Palestinians in order to bring them to the table, including the current freeze on settlement expansion," the statement continued.
