• MIDEAST PEACE DEADLINE ARRIVES

    0

    JERUSALEM: Washington’s deadline for reaching a Mideast peace deal arrived Tuesday with no breakthrough and US Secretary of State John Kerry mired in a row over allegations that he said Israel risks becoming an “apartheid state.” After more than a year of intensive shuttle diplomacy by Kerry, with the initial aim of brokering a deal by April 29, Washington’s patience appeared to be growing thin as both Israel and the Palestinians moved to distance themselves from the crisis-hit talks. Kerry on Monday vehemently denied calling Israel an apartheid state, as a furor grew in the Jewish state over comments the top US diplomat reportedly made during a private meeting.
