Kerry says pursuing 'quiet strategy' in peace process

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday said he was intensely focused on a "quiet strategy" to breathe new life into the Middle East peace process, but he will not be rushed as he seeks a path forward.

Speaking to reporters travelling with his delegation, Kerry said he believed it "would be irresponsible... not to explore thoroughly the possibilities for moving forward" as he seeks to overcome decades of mistrust between Israel and the Palestinians.
