Kerry on Mid-East peace talks: 'A significant step'

Israeli and Palestinian negotiators will resume peace talks in Washington on Monday, the US State Department has announced.

The talks, stalled since 2010, follow months of shuttle diplomacy by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

The statement came hours after Israel approved the release of more than 100 Palestinian prisoners.

Mr Kerry described the move as a "welcome and significant step forward".

Mr Kerry made these comments on 19 July 2013.
