Kerry Extends Mideast Stay to Reignite Peace Talks

Ad Feedback

JERUSALEM, Israel -- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is extending his stay in the Middle East to allow for additional meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Kerry flew to Jordan Thursday to meet with Abbas at his residence in Amman and will return to Israel Friday to meet with Netanyahu.

In Bethlehem, Wednesday, Kerry pledged an additional $75 million in U.S. aid to the P.A. to create more jobs and help them improve their infrastructure.

Kerry has brokered the restart of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, but little progress has been made to date.

"I'm concerned… about their progress because I see the Palestinians continuing with incitement, continuing to create artificial crises, continuing to avoid and run away from the historic decisions that are needed to make a genuine peace," Netanyahu said.
