Secretary of State John Kerry is planning to attend the preliminary foreign ministers' meeting that France is convening in advance of a French-sponsored Middle East peace conference, Haaretz reported Monday.
The Palestine Liberation Organization's Saeb Erekat told the newspaper that Kerry has told Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas that he plans to attend the summit, to take place in Paris on May 30.
At this stage, however, State Department officials will not confirm that Kerry will be attending the foreign ministers' meeting, and Washington has been reluctant to express support for the French initiative.
For his part, Erekat told Haaretz that Kerry and Abbas spoke by phone three days ago and Kerry made clear his intention to attend the foreign ministers' meeting.
Until now, Kerry hasn't announced whether he'll attend the summit, and made no public statement on his stance about the event, which Jerusalem opposes. In his daily briefing for reporters, noted Haaretz, State Department spokesman John Kirby said no final decision has been made on Kerry's attendance and that the Americans had informed the French that Kerry was not available on May 30.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Of course John Kerry will attend. Gotta git all the licks in he can before he has that Trump sized footprint in his backside.
After the meeting Kerry can drop over to Romania for his annual neck bolt tightening.
Otherwise known as “A White Surrender Fiag Meeting!”
It is French...
I wonder if Kerry will pimp the idea that for ME peace to happen Israel needs to capitulate to the Pali’s...
Of course. That's the idea. Anything to damage Israel. Anything to damage America. That is BHO's agenda.
he can’t do much more harm now
just spew a lot of BS
I rather imagine that the Israelis may decide on a new government some time after Obama is safely removed from America?
So who are the French surrendering to this time?
I can’t understand why that jackass didn’t move to France ages ago.
Probably do just as well with a sturdy coat and hat rack!
