Kerry will visit Jerusalem and Ramallah for more peace talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

From Reuters: 

Kerry wants the sides to agree to a framework for an interim accord ahead of a deal in April, which would launch another year of talks aimed at a full-blown peace treaty. A framework would demonstrate that progress is being made in talks that began in July, according to U.S. officials.

A framework would touch on all the main issues, including security, the future of Jerusalem and the fate of refugees.
