Middle East peace talks crisis: Your reaction
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas says Middle East peace talks are in crisis following Israel's refusal to stop building settlements on occupied land. What are the prospects for peace in the region?
Mr Abbas' comments come hours after the US admitted that it had failed to get Israel to renew its settlement curbs.
Direct talks were suspended by the Palestinian leader in September after a 10-month freeze on Israeli building in the West Bank, excluding East Jerusalem, expired.
How significant is the latest development? What is the future for Middle East peace? What should happen next? Should the US be doing more to bring the two sides together?
