US Secretary of State John Kerry ended a marathon round of shuttle diplomacy between Israelis and Palestinians on Sunday without an agreement on restarting peace talks.

"We have had very positive discussions, very important discussions, for the last few days," Kerry told reporters after meeting again with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

"We agreed we have made real progress but we have a few things we need to work on," Kerry said, without elaborating but signalling the door remained open for further diplomacy.

Abbas made no comment after the session, held after Kerry met for six hours overnight in Jerusalem with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. Kerry was due to leave for Asia in the afternoon.
