WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama spoke by phone on Thursday to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a White House official said, as the United States seeks to keep up the momentum toward peace negotiations.

Days after Israeli and Palestinian negotiators ended a three-year void and met in Washington with Secretary of State John Kerry, Obama talked to both Abbas and Netanyahu. Details of the discussions were expected later in the day.
