Israeli, Palestinian negotiators to meet this week in Jordan

[ via LA Times

Israeli and Palestinian negotiators will meet this week in Jordan with international mediators, Jordanian officials announced Sunday, bringing the two rivals together for their first direct talks in more than a year.
Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh on Tuesday will host a meeting between the two sides’ negotiators and mediators from the so-called quartet — the United States, Russia, the United Nations and the European Union — Jordan’s Petra news agency reported, citing a Foreign Ministry spokesman. That session will be followed by another meeting between the Israelis and Palestinians.

While not labeled formal negotiations, the talks are seen as a small step forward in a peace effort that has long been stymied.
