Speaking in Kuwait on his fifth trip to the region and on his way to speak with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, the top U.S. diplomat stressed he was not suggesting a deadline but rather the importance in making headway toward a comprehensive agreement before the U.N. General Assembly resumes it debate.
"We need to be showing some kind of progress in some way, because I don't think we have the luxury of that kind of time," Kerry said in a joint statement with his Kuwaiti counterpart.
After three months of effort by Kerry, anticipation has been building in Jerusalem and in the West Bank that a concrete proposal is under consideration. Israeli news reports suggest a new flexibility by Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, The New York Times reported.
