Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Friday revealed that Israel is still working on ways to resume peace talks with the Palestinians ahead of the United Nations General Assembly in September, AFP reported late Friday night.

After meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who again called on Barak to return to the negotiating table and expressed concern over settlement construction, the defense minister was quoted as telling reporters, "We are still trying to find a formula that will enable an understanding between the members of the Quartet in a way that will enable a resumption of negotiations."

He added, "I cannot honestly predict that it will happen but we are still trying to do our best to enable it," stressing that direct talks are the only way to reach a permanent solution between both sides.
