QUESTION: A viable peace plan this time.

SECRETARY KERRY: Oh. Area C needs to open up to greater development and commerce, more movement, but that’s something we shouldn’t do in a haphazard way like this. There are some very specific things were all talked about, and we’ll see what we do. But we want to be constructive.
