In a visit to Amman, Jordan on Saturday, Israel's chief negotiator, Oded Eran, said that Israel would keep trying to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians despite the failed Camp David summit, Jordan's official news agency Petra said.
Eran told Jordanian Foreign Minister Abdel Ilah Khatib that "Israel is determined to pursue negotiations with the Palestinians to reach an acceptable solution," the agency said.
Jordan already heard from Palestinian information minister Yasser Abed Rabbo on Thursday, when he said in a visit to Amman that "while the two parties did not reach an accord, these negotiations nonetheless permitted progress to be made on the subjects discussed."
