PARIS — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is holding a second day of talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Paris as he continues to press for an agreement on a framework for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

The State Department says that Kerry, a day after a more than two-hour meeting, was seeing the Palestinian leader again on Thursday.

They are working to define the framework for negotiators as they seek to forge a comprehensive settlement to the conflict.

The Israelis and Palestinians agreed to resume long-stalled talks last summer with a nine-month target for a peace deal. But there have been few tangible signs of progress as the May expiration of that period looms, and so the goal has been scaled back to getting consensus on an outline for negotiations.
