"Israeli and Palestinian [Arab] officials met Tuesday in Jordan's capital, Amman, in the first attempt at peace talks in more than a year. As expected, there were no breakthroughs. Diplomats from the so-called quartet of Middle East peacemakers -- the United States, the European Union, Russia and the United Nations -- witnessed the talks, though analysts said they saw no prospects for the two sides to agree soon to settle the decades-long standoff."
