WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. officials say Secretary of State John Kerry will name former U.S. ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk to shepherd Israeli-Palestinian peace talks that begin Monday in Washington.
The officials say Kerry would name Indyk Monday at the State Department, a day after he announced the resumption of the long-stalled negotiations. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly before Kerry's mid-morning announcement.
Indyk, currently at the Brookings Institution think tank, served as former President Bill Clinton's ambassador to Israel and was a key part of the failed 2000 Camp David peace talks.
