Egypt claimed Wednesday it received assurances from the US which may aid in restarting direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Egyptian Presidential spokesman Suleiman Awwad said Wednesday that US President Barack Obama has committed to exerting efforts toward direct peace talks with a two-state solution which "we hope will continue and yield an Arab and international consensus" on talks.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said he won't negotiate directly with Israel unless it agrees to recognize its 1967 frontier as a basis for the borders of a future state, and freezes settlement activities.

Binyamin Netanyahu has refused to be pinned down on a framework for negotiations.

Abbas has been under heavy international pressure to restart direct talks.
