Kerry to meet Palestinian leader Abbas in Amman Wednesday

US Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Amman Wednesday, interrupting a visit to Italy to meet with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on peace talks with Israel, a US spokeswoman said.

Kerry's trip aims "to continue to narrow the gaps between the parties", spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said Tuesday, adding that the US diplomatic chief would also be in touch with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "over the phone or by video conference".
