(CNN) – Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday began to lay out President Barack Obama’s administration’s vision for Middle East peace, offering a framework for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
The outgoing secretary of state’s speech at the State Department comes amid heightened tensions between the US and Israeli administrations after the Obama administration declined to veto a UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
The vision Kerry began to lay out on Wednesday, though, is likely to be short-lasting: In less than a month, Kerry and Obama will leave office and President-elect Donald Trump — who has vowed to radically reverse the recent downward trend in US-Israel relations — will take over.
Trump, in his latest breach of presidential transition protocol, weighed in on Twitter Wednesday morning ahead of Kerry’s speech to make that much clear.
