Kerry leaves Jerusalem after three days of lengthy meetings with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

America's top diplomat is trying to nudge the two closer to signing an accord, setting up a Palestinian state alongside Israel. Kerry said yesterday that progress is being made, yet key hurdles are to be overcome.

Kerry's talks today with Jordan's King Abdullah II and Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah are likely to touch on the war in Syria, rising violence in Iraq, and Iran's nuclear program.
