United States Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Ramallah from Amman, Jordan to meet Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Friday, according to a PA official cited by Agence France Presse. "Kerry will go at today to meet Abbas, travelling by Jordanian helicopter," the official told AFP on condition of anonymity. This was confirmed by a senior State Department official.
Kerry was scheduled to fly home following a meeting with chief PA negotiator Saeb Erekat in Amman. The announcement of the return to Ramallah followed a second, unscheduled meeting with Dr. Erekat.
