Trying to ease tensions, Kerry to also meet with Abbas

PARIS – US Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday he will meet this week with both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in a bid to ease tensions that have erupted in deadly violence.

Kerry plans talks with Netanyahu in Germany and then, after a meeting on Syria in an as-yet undetermined location, intends to see Abbas and Jordanian King Abdullah in the Mideast. Kerry isn’t giving the exact dates. But US officials say Kerry probably will be in Germany on Thursday and Jordan on Saturday.
