Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called her talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas productive.

Clinton, who met with Abbas Friday, said she hopes to build momentum for another peace push when she visits Israel in 10 days, the Associated Press reported.

She said the two discussed how to build on a recent letter exchange between Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Clinton said the U.S. is committed to a two-state peace agreement. “We cannot lose sight of the critical importance” of Israeli-Palestinian peace despite upheaval across the Arab world, she said, according to AP.

Clinton and Abbas met in Paris, where the secretary of state was attending a conference on Syria.
