US Secretary of State John Kerry insisted Thursday that Israel's security is a top priority for Washington, both in nuclear talks with Iran and peace talks with the Palestinians. Kerry was in the region for a day of talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders aimed at driving forward peace negotiations which appear to have made little headway since they began under his patronage in late July. But Iran was also high on the agenda when he met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for more than three hours in their first face-to-face meeting since political fallout over the Iran nuclear deal. "I can't emphasise enough that Israel's security in this negotiation (with Iran) is at the top of our agenda," Kerry said at a joint news conference in Jerusalem.
