Palestinian and Israeli leaders will not meet for negotiations although they will be in Washington this weekend, the U.S. State Department said. "Right now, I’m not anticipating that we would have Israelis and the Palestinians in the same room at this time," State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said Wednesday. The United States this week abandoned efforts to persuade Israel into extending a moratorium on settlement building as a means of pulling the Palestinians back into direct talks. Crowley's remark suggested that the Obama administration for the time being was giving up on direct talks.
