The United State has not given up on the Israeli-Palestinian negotiating process, although talks seem to have derailed.

Deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Friday that the sides were still at the negotiating table, and stressed that Washington was still committed to the process despite the current lack of foresight as to where the diplomatic efforts were leading.

"We are focused on continuing," Harf said. "We are still committed to the process, but as we’ve said many times, we can’t make tough decisions for [the sides]."

"We intend to evaluate precisely what the next steps will be, and see if we can keep making progress here," she added.

While Harf reiterated the US view that both the Israeli and Palestinian sides had made "unhelpful steps" in the past days, the US negotiating team remained on the ground to see if the the parties could take the initiative upon themselves to forge a path toward peace.
