Obama urges Abbas to 'take risks' for peace

Palestinian women walk past Israeli security forces during clashes with Palestinian stone throwers in the West Bank city of Hebron, on March 17, 2014US President Barack Obama told Mahmud Abbas that the Palestinian leader and Israel’s politicians must be prepared to make tough decisions and take “risks” for peace. Abbas arrived at the White House two weeks after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, warning that time was running short for a final deal and saying Israel could show it was serious by honoring a scheduled release of Palestinian prisoners this month. Obama, personally supporting Secretary of State John Kerry’s exhaustive Middle East peace drive at a critical moment, is pressing both sides to accept a framework to carry negotiations past an end-of-April deadline.
