Israeli and Palestinian negotiators will resume peace talks in Washington on Monday, the US State Department has announced.
The talks, the first such for three years, come after months of shuttle diplomacy by US Secretary of State John Kerry, and the approval by Israel of the release of more than 100 Palestinian prisoners.
