U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he will remain in the Middle East for an extra day to try to salvage foundering Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Kerry said in a joint interview with Israeli and Palestinian television networks set to air Thursday evening that he will return to Israel on Friday to meet again with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

On Thursday, Kerry traveled to Jordan for a meeting in Amman with Jordanian officials, as well as a second meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Amman was scheduled to be the last stop on Kerry’s two-day trip to the Middle East.

On Wednesday, Kerry met twice with Netanyahu in Jerusalem and once with Abbas in Bethlehem.
