Israeli-Palestinian Talks Progressing, Despite Sore Spots

Play associated audio
Secretary of State John Kerry says Israeli and Palestinian negotiators have met 13 times — that's a hair over once a week if you count from August 13, the first day they sat down together in this part of the world since Kerry announced the restart of talks. What true progress has been made is difficult to judge, but some things are clear. Settlements are a continuing sore point for Palestinians. The Jordan Valley will be fought over for both its economic and security value. Some Israeli lawmakers are trying to tie the government's hands, while others have gone to Ramallah to show support. And nobody knows what to do about Hamas.
