The Quartet of Mideast peacemakers shepherding newly started direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations have abruptly canceled a planned a news conference at the United Nations, after failing to reach agreement on who would appear on behalf of the group.

Senior diplomats from Quartet — the U.S., the European Union, the United Nations and Russia — met on the sidelines of the United Nations anti-poverty meeting to discuss a way forward in the negotiations, which have made little visible progress since they resumed earlier this month and are at risk of collapsing.
