Netanyahu and Abbas Shake Hands at Climate Summit

Israel's prime minister and the Palestinian president, in France for the climate summit, met and shook hands for the first time in years, NBC News reported.

A photograph shows Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas shaking hands and smiling on the sidelines of global climate talks outside Paris on Monday. It wasn't immediately clear if they had agreed to meet or if they spoke.

U.S. mediated peace talks between the sides collapsed early 2014 and the two leaders haven't met in years.
