The White House on Thursday declined to comment on reports of an American incentive package intended to advance talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that senior US officials had worked all week with the two sides and with Arab states to keep the talks on track.

Gibbs expressed US hopes that despite disappointment that the construction freeze would not be extended, the talks would continue.
