JERUSALEM (AP) -- A day after sealing a deal with Russia on securing Syria's chemical weapons stockpiles, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss the agreement.

Netanyahu says Israel hopes the plan will lead to the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons arsenal.

During Kerry's brief stopover Sunday in Jerusalem, the two men are also talking about developments in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Kerry met last week in London with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and has wanted to see both men before the annual U.N. General Assembly session later this month.

Kerry travels next to Paris for discussions about Syria on Monday with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and British Foreign Secretary William Hague. Kerry will also see the Saudi foreign minister.
