NEW YORK (AFP) - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton held key talks Thursday with Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as Jewish settlements in the occupied territories risked ending the latest Middle East peace negotiations. Clinton vowed to find a way forward, while Netanyahu said a historic agreement with the Palestinians was still possible. Clinton commented at the start of the meeting that the prime minister and president Abbas are both very committed to a two-state solution and we are going to find a way forward. Were going to be talking about everything, she added. Netanyahu said: We will be talking about how to resume and continue this process to get a historic agreement with peace and security between us and the Palestinians. We also hope to broaden it to many other Arab countries... we are quite serious about doing it and we want to get on with it, he added. Warning against unilateral steps and expressing deep disappointment with the Israeli move, Clinton nevertheless sought to remain upbeat about the peace campaign going into the New York talks. In Jerusalem, visiting US Senator John Kerry warned that the moment for Middle East peace was in danger of slipping away. The window of opportunity for a comprehensive peace is closing, narrowing is the best way to put it, he told reporters at a meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres.
