Major powers to study incentives to revive Mideast peace process

PARIS – France’s foreign minister said on Friday that major powers were aiming to begin working by the end of June on a set of economic incentives and security guarantees to encourage Israelis and Palestinians to resurrect peace talks by year-end. “The two-state solution is in serious danger. We are reaching a point of no return where this solution will not be possible,” Jean-Marc Ayrault told a news conference after convening some 25 ministers to discuss giving fresh impetus to peace talks. A final communique said all sides had reaffirmed the need for a negotiated two-state solution and that direct negotiations between the two sides should be based on existing UN Security Council resolutions.
