Abbas: US must declare 'endgame' to solve ME conflict

The US must declare an "endgame" in order to solve the Middle East conflict, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday, unless Israel agrees to stop all settlement construction.
Speaking to reporters in Ramallah, the PA president said, "Either Israel adheres to a complete halt to settlements and the guidelines [of negotiations] or America must come and say this is the endgame with respect to determining borders and the refugee issue and other final-status issues."
