Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and US Secretary of State John Kerry expressed mutual interest to continue a conversation to reignite peace talks in the Middle East before meeting together in Rome on Wednesday afternoon.

"I think it’s fair to say that we are working through a threshold of questions, that we’re doing it with a seriousness and purpose that I think Minister Livni would agree with me has not been present in a while," Kerry said.

He also payed homage to Prime Minister Netanyahu, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat, who have all been working on the talks.

"We feel that peace between Israel and the Palestinians is in Israeli interest, and I believe it is also in Palestinian interest," Livni said in response.

She added, "But yet we are, after some years of stalemate, and your determination and enthusiasm and efforts can change the realities."
