Netanyahu Blames Palestinians For Stalled Peace Talks

Secretary of State John Kerry is in Israel trying to revive the peace process


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has blamed the Palestinians for the apparent stalemate in their peace talks, accusing them of creating "artificial crises" and incitement.

He spoke after talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry, who is attempting to revive the peace process.

The direct negotiations launched in July have shown little sign of progress and are due to end next April.

Mr Kerry will later meet Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
