Kerry to meet Palestinian leader Abbas in Amman Wednesday

US Secretary of State John Kerry gets off a plane as he arrives at the Ciampino Airport, near Rome, on March 25, 2014US Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Amman Wednesday, interrupting a visit to Italy to meet with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on peace talks with Israel. Kerry’s trip aims “to continue to narrow the gaps between the parties”, spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said Tuesday, adding that the US diplomatic chief would also be in touch with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “over the phone or by video conference”. His unexpected visit — setting off from the Italian capital just hours after arriving — came as fresh tensions rose over the peace talks, which Kerry is struggling to keep on track beyond an April 29 deadline. Arab leaders meeting Tuesday in Kuwait were expected to back a Palestinian refusal to recognise Israel as a Jewish state, an Israeli demand that threatens to derail the talks.
