WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry called on Israel and the Palestinians to advance prospects for a two-state solution after the United States abstained in a UN Security Council vote on Friday condemning Israeli settlements.

Kerry said in a statement that the United States did not agree with every aspect of the resolution. But he said the UN measure "rightly condemns violence and incitement and settlement activity and calls on both sides to take constructive steps to reverse current trends and advance the prospects for a two state solution."
