Israel seeking formula for Palestinian talks

Diplomats from `Quartet` earlier failed to find a basis for moving the peace process forward.

New York: Israel`s defence minister says his government is trying to find "a formula" that will enable Mideast peace mediators to agree on a way to revive Israeli-Palestinian talks.

Ehud Barak told reporters after meeting UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday: "I cannot promise you that it will happen, but we are still trying to do our best to enable it."

Diplomats from the so-called "Quartet" - the US, UN, European Union and Russia - failed earlier this month to find a basis for moving the peace process forward.
"We are still trying to find a formula that will enable understanding between the members of the Quartet in a way that will enable resumption of negotiations," Barak said.
