Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Amman, Jordan on July 15 to hold meetings with Arab League, Jordanian and Palestinian officials in hopes of bringing Israelis and Palestinians back to the negotiating table. Kerry's trip marks his sixth to the Middle East since entering office on February 1, and the greatest number of peacemaking missions to the region by a secretary of state since Condoleezza Rice. By the end of the week, the top U.S. diplomat announced that his efforts had come to fruition, revealing on July 19 that the two sides had established “a basis” for resuming direct peace negotiations after more than three years of stalemate.
