U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, making his fourth trip to Israel in four months to revive the dormant Israeli-Palestinian peace process and again not fostering a breakthrough, on Thursday cited the “skepticism” and “cynicism” about the prospects for peace.

“I know this region well enough to know that there is skepticism,” said Kerry—who met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli President Shimon Peres, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday—according to Reuters. “In some quarters there is cynicism and there are reasons for it. There have been bitter years of disappointment.”

“It is our hope that by being methodical, careful, patient, but detailed and tenacious, that we can lay out a path ahead that can conceivably surprise people but certainly exhaust the possibilities of peace,” Kerry added.
