At the Saban Forum, which has become an annual wide-ranging review of American foreign policy in the Middle East, Kerry outlines five major objectives for the US in the region: mobilize partners internationally to defeat ISIS, work diplomatically to end the civil war in Syria, and insure that the unrest in the region does not spread, thereby particularly supporting Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, and Turkey. Kerry touches on the existing cooperation with Israel on defense and intelligence matters, and the preparedness of the international community to monitor Iranian adherence to the deal it signed with the P5+1 in August 2015. He urges Palestinian-Israeli negotiations, fearing without them, the Palestinian Authority will collapse. (source)
