Secretary of State John Kerry has named former US ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk as the lead negotiator on the Middle East peace talks.
The talks, stalled since 2010, follow months of shuttle diplomacy by Mr Kerry.
Mr Indyk said the assignment was "daunting and humbling", but he believed that ''peace is possible.''
