Balancing peace in the Middle East

Israeli and Palestinian leaders proceed with direct negotiations amid scepticism over success of peace process.

    Israeli and Palestinian leaders have entered a second round of direct Middle East talks in the past two weeks, but in the end both sides could only agree to talk again on Wednesday.

    The negotiations in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh were attended by senior US officials including Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, and George Mitchell, the US Middle East envoy.

    Clinton and Mitchell both expressed optimism over the direction of the talks, but did not say if any tangible progress had been made.
