US Secretary of State John Kerry was due to convene a press conference on Sunday to discuss his most recent visit to the region under the framework of resuming stalled peace negotiation between Israel and the Palestinian, Army Radio reported Saturday.

Kerry returned via Tel Aviv to see Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the third time Saturday evening.

US officials earlier in the day confirmed Kerry's expected press conference in Jordan had been postponed following a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, according to Israel Radio, countering Jordanian reports that he planned to announce the convention of a peace summit in Amman.

It was unclear whether Kerry would be able to announce a resumption of talks before his scheduled departure for Asia on Sunday.
