U.S. Middle East peace envoy Indyk resigns after talks fail

By Arshad Mohammed WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Middle East peace envoy Martin Indyk has resigned following the collapse of Israeli-Palestinian talks, but the State Department said on Friday he would remain involved in the peace effort. Indyk’s departure had been widely expected after the two sides failed to meet their goal of reaching a comprehensive peace agreement this spring. Indyk, a former U.S. ambassador to Israel, will return to the Brookings Institution think tank in Washington, the department said in a statement. “Ambassador Indyk will continue to work closely with Secretary Kerry on the Obama administration’s efforts to help Israelis and Palestinians resolve their conflict,” it said.
