U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will be in Israel and the Palestinian territories next week in his bid to revive the peace process.

“These meetings are to follow-up on ongoing discussions as we continue to assess how best we can support the parties in getting back to the table and in having dialogue leading to peace,” said a State Department statement released Friday.

“We remain committed to working with the parties to achieve a lasting peace through direct negotiations,” it said.

Kerry will visit Jerusalem on May 23-24. It will be his third trip to the region since he became secretary of state in February.

Kerry has said reviving the talks is a priority for the Obama administration.

  1. KERRY LIKES TO VISIT AND IS AN ETERNAL OPTIMIST..WHY HE THINKS HE WILL SUCCEED WHEN ALL PAST U S NEGOTIANTORS MUCH MORE EQUIPPED THAN HIMSELF TO UNDERSTAND MIDDLE EASTERN CONDITIONS HAVE FAILED IS A CONUNDRUM…..HE HAS GIVEN HIS BLESSING TO THE ARAB LEAGUE "67 BORDER" PEACE PROPOSAL WHICH IS THE SAME ONE THEY HAVE BEEN PUSHING FOR YEARS AND EVERY ISRAELI ADMINISTRATION HAS IGNORED AS A NON STARTER.
    NOW WE HAVE HAMAS AND FATAH SOON TO COMBINE AS ONE PALESTINIAN ENTITY 1/2 NAZI ORIENTED..WHO CHARACTERIZE JEWS AS APES AND MONKEYS..WHO KERRY EXPECTS THE ISRAELIS TO TALK TO…OY!
    NOW THAT SOME FORM OF WAR BETWEEN SYRIA/HEZBOLLAH AND ISRAEL LOOKS.
    LIKE A POSSIBILITY IT IS HERE THAT KERRY SHOULD DIRECT HIS VISITS..
    THE RUSSIANS HAVE BEEN WALKING ALL OVER THE U S WHEN IT COMES TO SYRIA.
    SENDING MISSILES..BOATS AND EMBOLDENING ;;ALMOST PUSHING ASSAD TO ATTACK ISRAEL WHICH IS FAR MORE DANGEROUS THAN THOSE "SETTLEMENTS".
    WHICH KERRY THINKS ARE THE MAIN OBSTACLE TO PEACE.
