US, Quartet peace envoys to meet in Brussels
US, Quartet envoys to meet Wednesday in Brussels, with Mideast peace process struggling
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' U.S. and other Mideast peace envoys are meeting Wednesday in Brussels in a bid to boost Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says U.S., European Union, U.N. and Russian envoys will discuss Palestinian state-building efforts. She didn't say if the so-called Quartet would seek to advance Israeli-Palestinian proposals on borders and security in a final peace agreement.

The sides are supposed to reach a treaty by year-end but talks are foundering. Palestinians want Israeli settlement construction stopped in lands they seek for their state. Israel opposes a role for Hamas in Palestinian governance.

Nuland said mediators would lay the groundwork for a meeting in Washington of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the U.N. secretary-general and the top EU and Russian diplomats next month.
