Negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians have reached a "deep and worrying impasse," said assistant US Secretary-General for Political Affairs Haile Menkerios on Tuesday. Menkerios stated that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's announcement that he wished to withdraw from politics reflected "a worrying assessment, from a leader unquestionably devoted to peace, that the political process lacks sufficient content and credibility at this time." The assistant secretary-general said the actions of both Israel and Hamas constituted obstacles and even dangers to peace, stressing that "this is a loud and clear wake-up call."
