Kerry will visit Jerusalem and Ramallah for more peace talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

From Reuters: 

Kerry wants the sides to agree to a framework for an interim accord ahead of a deal in April, which would launch another year of talks aimed at a full-blown peace treaty. A framework would demonstrate that progress is being made in talks that began in July, according to U.S. officials.

A framework would touch on all the main issues, including security, the future of Jerusalem and the fate of refugees.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
