Kerry: Obama Not Coming to Israel with a Peace Plan


John Kerry said Tuesday that President Barack Obama does not intend to bring a peace plan with him on his trip to Israel next month, but rather plans on listening to both sides. 

"We're not going to go and sort of plunk a plan down and tell everybody what they have to do," Kerry said. "I want to consult and the president wants to listen."

Speaking to German students on his first trip abroad as Secretary of State, Kerry said that only after Obama's trip might the U.S. formulate a peace plan and urged both sides to keep the prospect of peace alive amid rising tensions in Judea and Samaria.
