John Kerry, the US secretary of state, has said he will meet Israeli prime ministerBinyamin Netanyahu in Germany this week, followed by talks with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas after more than two weeks of violence between Israelis and Palestinians.
It is the first time Kerry has confirmed media reports of a meeting with both Netanyahu and Abbas. He did not say where he planned to meet Abbas other than that it will be in the Middle East, but the meeting is widely expected to take place in Jordan.
“Later this week I will meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu because he will be in Germany … and then I will go to the region, I will meet with President Abbas, I will meet King Abdullah [of Jordan] and others,” Kerry said during a lunch at Unesco’s headquarters in Paris.
While in Europe Kerry said he would also hold meetings on Syria. He has been pressing Russia to agree on a political transition in Syria which would see Bashar al-Assad leave power.
