The White House said in a statement that the two leaders discussed the impasse in US efforts to launch indirect peace talks when they met on the sidelines of a 47-nation nuclear security summit here.
“Both agreed that Israeli-Palestinian proximity talks should begin as soon as possible, and transition quickly to direct negotiations,” the statement said.
“They also agreed that both sides should refrain from actions that undermine trust during these talks.”
