Home Front Defense Minister Gilad Erdan on Saturday played down the prospect of shuttle diplomacy by US Secretary of State John Kerry reviving long-stalled peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

Asked whether new talks might be imminent, told Channel 2 television: "To my regret, no, as of now."He blamed "preconditions" set by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whom Kerry met in Jordan twice in two days, alternating the meetings with talks with Netanyahu in Jerusalem.
