Palestinian and Israeli negotiators remain in New York for peace talks

graphic

NEW YORK (CNN) -- In the hopes of furthering Middle East peace negotiations, Palestinian and Israeli negotiators remained in New York this weekend.

While a State Department official said no formal talks were planned, he did not rule out the chance for "impromptu" discussions.

The parties hit a wall in discussions over Jerusalem this week.

Israel's acting Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami Friday rejected a proposal that Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat presented to President Clinton for Islamic sovereignty over holy sites in Jerusalem, saying the "idea doesn't look as a real starter for a solution."

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright met with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah Friday night over dinner to garner his support for the negotiations. Saudi Arabia, considered an important ally in the peace, has publicly said it will not support a compromise on Jerusalem.
