PARIS/RAMALLAH - US Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday that a wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence could hamper French efforts to revive the peace process, but pledged "we are all looking for a way forward."

"The United States and myself remain deeply, deeply committed to a two-state solution," Kerry said after a Paris meeting with his counterparts from France, Italy, Britain, Germany and EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

"At the moment it is a difficult one, because of the violence that has been taking place, and there are not many people in Israel or in the region itself right now that believe in the possibilities of peace because of those levels of violence," he added.

Kerry's comments came after his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault said he would present proposals to revive talks to EU foreign ministers meeting in Brussels on Monday. "The Israeli-Palestinian conflict remains but is getting worse, the status quo cannot last," Ayrault said in Paris.

The newly-appointed French foreign minister visited Cairo last week to drum up support for the initiative to hold an international conference by the summer to revive peace talks.

A previous round of talks brokered by Kerry collapsed in April 2014.

"There's not any one country or one person can resolve this. This is going to require the global community, it will require international support," said Kerry.

Meanwhile, Israel on Sunday refused to allow Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi to visit the occupied West Bank, where she was to hold talks with Palestinian leaders, the Palestinian foreign ministry said.

Israeli authorities control access to the West Bank, where the Palestinian political capital Ramallah is located.

Marsudi was to hold talks in Ramallah with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas and her counterpart Riad al-Malki, according to a statement from the Palestinian foreign ministry.

She also planned to open an honorary consular office, it said. Malki instead travelled to Jordan to meet her.

Indonesian foreign ministry spokesman Arrmanatha Nasir said in a statement that "Israel did not grant the overflight permit for the helicopter" that was to take Marsudi from Jordan to the West Bank.

It provided no further details on why she was denied entry.

Israel and Indonesia do not have formal diplomatic relations.

Israel's foreign ministry declined to comment and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office did not immediately respond to an AFP query.

Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Marsudi was refused access to Ramallah after declining to also visit Jerusalem and meet Israeli officials there.
