Jerusalem - US Secretary of State John Kerry has decided to stay an extra day in the Mideast on his latest trip to salvage Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Kerry said in a joint interview with Israeli and Palestinian TV networks that will air later on Thursday that he plans to return to Israel on Friday for another meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Meanwhile, Kerry landed on Thursday in Amman, Jordan, which was supposed to be the final stop in his two-day Mideast trip. He had not originally been scheduled to return to Israel.

Kerry brokered the re-start of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, which began three months ago.

But little progress has been made in the US-brokered talks which are supposed to produce an agreement by the end of April 2014.
