Clinton reports scant progress

2009-10-23 07:16

Washington - President Barack Obama's administration is reporting little progress in its efforts to renew stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with Obama on Thursday to update him on the situation.

An administration official says Clinton advised the president that challenges remain before the negotiations can resume.

The official says the Palestinians have strengthened their security efforts while the Israelis have expressed a willingness to curtail settlement activity. But the official says both sides need to do more for the process to move forward.

George Mitchell, Obama's special envoy to the Mideast, will be returning to the region to continue talks.
