Quartet to meet Israelis, Palestinians separately

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The so-called Quartet of Middle East envoys will meet separately with Israeli and Palestinian officials in Jerusalem on October 26 to try to lay the ground for fresh Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Monday.

The Quartet is comprised of the European Union, Russia, the United Nations and the United States.
