President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry share a laugh with Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini, left, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond, and British Prime Minister David Cameron while waiting to meet with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko before the NATO Summit in Newport, Wales, United Kingdom on September 4, 2014.
(Worthy News) - Secretary of State John Kerry will attend a Middle East peace conference in Paris on Sunday, in a move likely to dismay an already angry Israel.
Neither Israel nor the Palestinian leadership will attend the talks, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said the meeting will only widen the gaps between Israel and the Palestinians.
Just weeks after the UN Security Council voted to condemn Israeli settlement building, the talks are meant to underline global support for a two-state peace deal. [ Source ]
