France planned to hold a peace process meeting at the end of this month, but was informed that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry would be unable to attend. So, The Jerusalem Post's Tovah Lazaroff reports, the meeting will be rescheduled for sometime this summer so that Kerry can take part in the latest peace talks:

France on Tuesday agreed to delay the May 30th launch of its new Israeli-Palestinian peace initiative until some time this summer to allow for the US to attend.

It had intended to hold a ministerial meeting at the end of the month with representatives from some 20 countries — not including the Israelis and Palestinians — to lay the groundwork for a larger international peace conference in the fall.

The Palestinians have welcomed the initiative and the Israelis have opposed it. But the US, which has led all past Israeli-Palestinian peace processes has yet to formally state a position on the matter.
