Agencies | Updated: 2013-09-26 11:30

UNITED NATIONS - US  Secretary of State John Kerry says renewed talks between Israel and Palestine are in pursuit of a "final status agreement," not an interim one.

Kerry spoke Wednesday before a closed-door meeting of Palestinian donors known as the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

The group is focused on helping to revive Palestine's fragile economy while the newly restarted peace talks with Israel move forward.

Kerry also says parties in the talks have agreed to "intensify" them and to "intensify the US facilitation" of negotiations.

President Barack Obama spoke Tuesday at a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and plans to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu next week in Washington.
