US Secretary of State John Kerry returns to Israel next week, seeking to ease tensions with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has denounced the nuclear deal with Iran as a "historic mistake."

The Middle East portion of the December 3rd to 6th trip will come after the globetrotting top US diplomat first attends a meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Brussels on Tuesday, and then travels to Moldova as well.
