Secretary Kerry traveled to Cairo, Egypt, July 21-22 to meet with Egyptian and other senior officials on the situation in Gaza. The United States – and our international partners– are deeply concerned about the risk of further escalation and the loss of more innocent life. We believe there should be a cease-fire as soon as possible – one that restores the cease-fire reached in November of 2012. Secretary Kerry is working to support Egypt’s initiative to pursue that outcome and will travel to the region as part of those efforts.

Secretary Kerry traveled next to Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Tel Aviv on July 23, accompanied by Acting Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations Frank Lowenstein, NSC Senior Director for the Middle East and North Africa Prem Kumar, Vice Admiral Kurt Tidd, JCS, and Spokesperson Jen Psaki.

Secretary Kerry returned to Cairo, Egypt on July 24 to continue meetings on the situation in Gaza.

July 25-26, Secretary Kerry traveled to Paris, France after talks with regional and international leaders in Cairo, Egypt.
