Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is wrapping up her three-day Mideast mission to revive stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Rice has met with top negotiators from both sides today ahead of a final session with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

There's no indication as to what, if anything, came from today's meetings. However, yesterday's talks produced new promises from Israel on easing restrictions in the West Bank.

Israel has agreed to remove about 50 roadblocks and upgrade checkpoints, while the Palestinians have pledged to improve security.

Rice will meet with reporters after sitting down with Abbas. She's flying to Ukraine later today to meet up with President Bush, who is flying to Europe to attend this week's NATO summit.
