Kerry To Visit Israel Again Amid Possible Deal Between West, Iran


kerrySecretary of State John Kerry will visit Israel once again on Friday amid mounting tensions over a possible agreement between the West and Iran regarding the latter’s nuclear plan.

The visit was announced by Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, who outlined his planned meetings with some world leaders this week, at the beginning of his weekly cabinet meeting.

Kerry had visited the Jewish country earlier this month, mostly dealing with the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

“John Kerry will arrive here on Friday. He’s an old friend of mine and of the State of Israel. He’s doing efforts to promote the peace process with the Palestinians, and we will talk about it, but we will also discuss the Iranian nuclear issue,” Netanyahu said, according to a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office.

“I want to remind you that there could be differences between the bets of friends, certainly on matters pertinent to our future and destiny,” he added.

Netanyahu reiterated his stance that the emerging agreement between Iran and the P5+1 nations (United States, Britain, France, China, Russia plus Germany) is a bad one and that the West could ” get more” if the pressure on Iran remains unchanged.
