A U.S. official says Israeli and Palestinian negotiators will resume peace talks in Jerusalem next week.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Thursday two U.S. envoys will attend next Wednesday's talks, which will be followed by a meeting in the West Bank town of Jericho.

She said Secretary of State John Kerry does not expect to make any announcements after this round of discussions.
