US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is to begin a whirlwind tour of the Middle East on Sunday, traveling through Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt and Kuwait over five days.

He is not scheduled to visit Israel this time. While speaking with reporters, a senior State Department official stated that "the secretary meets relatively frequently with Israeli officials when they’re in town" and that one should not reach any conclusions based on that single fact.
