imgUS Secretary of State John Kerry met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II Wednesday in a fresh bid to keep his Middle East peace bid on track, amid fears Israel may renege on a vow to free Palestinian prisoners.

Flying in from an interrupted visit to Rome, Kerry was also to hold talks with Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas in Amman in a bid to “continue to narrow the gaps” between the two sides, his spokeswoman said.

Under a July deal for the relaunch of the talks, Israel said it would release 104 Arabs held since before the 1993 Oslo peace accords in exchange for the Palestinians not pressing their statehood claims via the UN.
