US envoy, Netanyahu say talks made good progress

The Obama administration's Middle East peace envoy and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu say they have "made good progress" at talks aimed at restarting negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
A joint statement from former Sen. George Mitchell and Netanyahu, released after their four-hour meeting in London on Wednesday, says an Israeli delegation will visit the United States next week to follow up on the progress. The statement did not elaborate on any measures Mitchell and Netanyahu may have agreed to.
Mitchell has been trying to lay the groundwork for a resumption in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks by pressing the two sides and Arab states to take confidence-building steps but has yet to win agreement on the steps.
