Kerry to Brief Arabs on Deal

US Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Egypt and the Persian Gulf next week for talks on the recent nuclear deal between major powers and Iran and the fight against Islamic State militants.
Kerry will visit Cairo on August 2 for a session of the US-Egypt Strategic Dialogue, the US State Department said on Monday, Reuters reported.
On August 3 he will travel to Doha to meet with counterparts from the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council, which comprises Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar, for talks US officials say will concentrate on the Iran nuclear deal, the war in Syria and the battle against Islamic State.
In Doha, Kerry will also meet his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
Kerry said on Friday in his talks with Lavrov he planned to discuss combating Islamic State militants and the role Iran could play after Turkey agreed to step up its effort and to allow US jets launch air strikes from a base near the Syrian border.
