(VOA News) David Gollust - American Middle East envoy George Mitchell said Tuesday he thinks the U.S.-brokered direct Israeli-Palestinian peace talks "are moving in the right direction overall," after a three-way U.S.-Palestinian-Israeli meeting in Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt. "The parties have agreed to begin first on working to achieve a framework agreement for permanent status. That work is now well under way," Mitchell said. The venue will shift to Jerusalem Wednesday to, as a senior U.S. official said, "put the focus on the Israeli-Palestinian channel and to regularize the dialogue."
