Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Beijing, China July 8 - 10, 2014. In Beijing, Secretary Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew joined their Chinese co-chairs, State Councilor Yang Jiechi and Vice Premier Wang Yang, for the sixth joint meeting of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED).

Secretary Kerry traveled to Kabul, Afghanistan July 11-12 to meet with Afghan leaders, including presidential candidates Abdullah Abdullah and Ashraf Ghani and President Hamid Karzai. The Secretary discussed the ongoing political transition, reinforcing the President’s message that we expect a thorough review of all reasonable allegations of fraud and that we will not accept any extra-constitutional measures. While the United States does not support an individual candidate, we do support a credible, transparent, and inclusive process that affirms the Afghan people’s commitment to democracy, and that produces a president who can bring Afghanistan together and govern effectively. While in Afghanistan, Secretary Kerry helped broker an agreement on a technical and political plan to resolve the disputed outcome of the presidential election.

Secretary Kerry traveled to Vienna, Austria July 13 for consultations on Iran's nuclear program with Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif, EU High Representative Ashton, and other foreign ministers from the P5+1 whose schedules allowed them to attend.
