WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration says it is negotiating diplomatic and security assurances it plans to make to Israel in a bid to restart stalled peace talks with the Palestinians.

The State Department said Friday that the process of drafting a document detailing the assurances continues. Spokesman P.J. Crowley refused to discuss specifics of the assurances but his comments were the first public confirmation from a U.S. official that written guarantees to Israel were being prepared.

The U.S. hopes the guarantees will persuade Israel to agree to a new freeze on settlement activity in the West Bank, in a bid to persuade the Palestinians to return to the negotiations.
