U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday he will attend a conference in Paris on June 3 to discuss possible Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts but said it was up to both sides to decide whether they were ready to negotiate.

"The parties themselves have to make the decision to negotiate and in that clearly there will have to be some compromise, without compromise it is not possible," Kerry told a news conference during a meeting of NATO foreign ministers.

"I will work with the French, I will work with the Egyptians, I will work with the Arab community in good faith in an effort to see if we can find a way to help the parties see their way to come back," he added.
