U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday called off a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah for last-minute talks on extending peace talks with Israel, a senior State Department official said.

"We are no longer travelling tomorrow. We are in close touch with the team on the ground," the official said.

Kerry said it was too early to draw conclusions about the prospects in peace talks between Israel and the Palestnians, saying "a lot of possibilities" were in play.

Kerry said Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had agreed to keep his promise to continue negotiating with Israel until the end of the month.

"Even tonight, both parties say they want to continue to find a way forward," Kerry told reporters after meeting his NATO counterparts in Brussels to discuss the crisis in Ukraine.
