OBAMA TO MEET KERRY AS MIDDLE EAST INITIATIVE FALTERS

0

WASHINGTON D.C.: President Barack Obama meets Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) as they evaluate the fate of US-led peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, which are close to collapse. Kerry will also on Tuesday likely face questioning about his strategy in the Middle East at a hearing in Congress, which will also reveal deepening concern about what the United States regards as Russian interference in eastern Ukraine. A visibly frustrated Kerry returned to Washington at the end of last week saying he needed to discuss with Obama whether to continue to invest large amounts of time and political capital in an effort being undermined by actions by both Israel and the Palestinians.
