Sept. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Middle East envoy George Mitchell said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas agreed today to seek a “framework” accord as part of their peace talks.

The accord would lay out the compromises needed to complete a comprehensive peace treaty in the one year that President Barack Obama has set as the target for an agreement, Mitchell said.

Mitchell, a former U.S. senator who helped to mediate peace efforts in Northern Ireland, described initial discussions between the sides in a briefing on the first day of direct Israeli-Palestinian talks.

Netanyahu and Abbas agreed to meet again Sept. 14-15 in the Middle East with Mitchell and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in attendance.
