Meetings between Kerry and Netanyahu have been particularly frosty this week, as the Israeli leader told the U.S. it was making a “mistake of historical proportions.” This frosty stare was the only photo Netanyahu’s office tweeted of their meeting.

Kerry told Netanyahu that “good faith” was needed, and that a diplomatic solution to the decades-long stalemate between Iran and the West was the best outcome for all.
Earlier in the week, Kerry appeared to have a good time meeting with other officials in the Middle East, including Jordan’s Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh who told Kerry he was doing “important work” for the region.
Senior officials from France, Germany, and the U.K. rushed to meet Kerry and the Iranian delegation in Geneva. Details are still emerging, but it looks like the West will offer to ease sanctions on Iran if they concede parts of their nuclear program.
