AMMAN: US Secretary of State John Kerry will make long-delayed visits to Algeria and Morocco next week, his spokeswoman said on Wednesday, marking his first trips to both countries.

The top US diplomat will on the April 1-5 trip travel to Algiers for meetings with top Algerian officials ahead of similar talks in Morocco. He had originally planned to visit both countries late last year, but had to change his schedule at the last minute.
