Obama says to hold 'accountable' Israel, Palestine talks

President Barack Obama has vowed to hold Israel and Palestine accountable if either side takes actions that "undermine trust" during U.S.-mediated talks launched this week, the White House said on Tuesday.

Obama made the pledge in a telephone call with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in which the U.S. leader also urged both parties to "negotiate seriously and in good faith and to move from proximity talks to direct negotiations as soon as possible," the White House said.
