      Kerry to meet Abbas, Netanyahu

      US Secretary of State John Kerry will meet separately with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday in a push to revive talks between the sides.

      A senior US official said Kerry will meet Abbas at his Amman residence in the afternoon and then return to Jerusalem to speak with Netanyahu in the evening, "to continue the conversations they started with President (Barack) Obama and the secretary earlier this week."    Kerry accompanied Obama on a four-day visit to the region, during which the
      two met top Israeli and Palestinian leaders in Jerusalem and Ramallah.
