Report: Kerry and Abbas to Meet in Jordan

United States Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to start a two-day visit to Jordan Wednesday, where he will meet with Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, Jordanian daily newspaper al-Arab al-Yawm reported Sunday.


The report, cited by the Ma’an news agency, quoted a “high-profile” Jordanian official as saying that Abbas and Kerry will discuss the currently suspended PA-Israeli peace talks, the ongoing unity talks between Hamas and Fatah, and the expected unity government, among other issues.


Kerry will also meet with Jordanian officials, the newspaper quoted the official as saying.


Asked whether Kerry would leave Amman to Israel for a meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the Jordanian official said that “preparations have been made so far for a visit to Amman, and any changes to the visit plans would be dependent on Kerry’s meeting with president Abbas.”
