Special Envoy George Mitchell had positive and productive talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders over the last three days. His meetings continued our efforts to improve the atmosphere for peace and for proceeding with proximity talks. Ambassador David Hale, a deputy to Special Envoy Mitchell, will work with the parties this week to prepare for the Special Envoy's return to the region next week.
