WASHINGTON (CNN) — Israeli and Palestinian negotiators will soon be heading to Washington to discuss the stalled peace process, the U.S. State Department said Tuesday.
The Israeli team is scheduled to arrive on Thursday and the Palestinian negotiators will arrive next week, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said.
The Israeli team will be led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s advisers Yitzhak Molcho and Mike Hertzog, the prime minister’s office said Sunday.
Top U.S. envoy to the region George Mitchell invited both sides to Washington during his weekend discussions with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
It is unclear who will represent the Palestinian side.
