US Secretary of State John Kerry is heading to Israel for a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a day after sealing a deal with Russia on securing Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles.
Mr. Kerry will make a brief stop in Jerusalem on Sunday to brief Netanyahu on the agreement and also discuss the developments in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Mr. Kerry met Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas last week in London and had wanted to see both men before the annual United Nations General Assembly session, where they are all expected to attend later this month.
From Jerusalem, Mr. Kerry travels to Paris for discussions about Syria on Monday with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and British Foreign Secretary William Hague. Mr. Kerry will also see the Saudi foreign minister in Paris.
