Israeli and Palestinian leaders plan talks with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in Jerusalem this month. The setting is a symbolic move to show the seriousness of peace negotiations.

U.S. officials said Sunday that Clinton would join Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Jerusalem on Sept. 15. The exact location wasn't immediately clear.

Those talks are to follow discussions Sept. 14 in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik.

Jerusalem's status is a contentious issue in the negotiations, which kicked off last week in Washington.

Israel wants the city to remain the undivided capital of the Jewish state. Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of an eventual state.
