‘Reasonable compromises’ in Middle East talks, says Kerry

US secretary of state John Kerry called on Monday for Israel and the Palestinians to make ‘reasonable compromises’ for peace as he prepared to preside over their first direct negotiations in nearly three years.

‘It is no secret this is a difficult process. If it were easy, it would have happened a long time ago,’ Kerry said with his newly named envoy for Israeli-Palestinian peace, former US ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk, at his side.

‘It is no secret, therefore, that many difficult choices lie ahead for the negotiators and for the leaders as we seek reasonable compromises on tough, complicated, emotional and symbolic issues,’ Kerry told reporters.
