US Secretary of State John Kerry will make long-delayed visits to Algeria and Morocco next week on his first trip to both countries, his spokeswoman said Wednesday.
The top US diplomat will first travel to Algiers for meetings with top officials ahead of similar talks in Morocco, Jen Psaki said.
Kerry had originally planned to visit both countries late last year, but had to change his schedule at the last minute.
While in Algiers, Kerry will also co-chair the US-Algeria Strategic Dialogue with Algerian Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra, Psaki said in a statement.
