Israeli and Palestinian negotiators arrived at the U.S. State Department in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, for their second day of peace talks. The talks began on Monday evening in a U.S.-brokered effort that Secretary of State John Kerry hopes will end the conflict, despite deep divisions. The talks are headed on the Israeli side by Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Yitzhak Molcho, a close aid to Netanyahu, while the Palestinian delegation is led by chief negotiator Saeb Erekat. Kerry, who has prodded, coaxed and cajoled the two sides to resume negotiations in a flurry of visits to the Middle East during his less than six months in office, urged Israelis and Palestinians to strike "reasonable compromises." It was clear, however, from some public statements over the agenda for the talks, which are expected to run for nine months, that there are major disagreements over issues such as borders and security.
