“We hope that whatever government is formed is a government that will – or whether there are elections, that those elections will produce — the possibility of a government that can negotiate and move towards resolving the differences between Israelis and Palestinians, and obviously, the differences in the region,” Kerry told reporters while speaking at NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.

Kerry made sure it doesn’t look like he’s getting involved in Israel’s internal politics, something that could only escalate the rift between the two administrations and even benefit Netanyahu among right wing voters.

“I simply don’t comment on the internal politics of any country, and certainly not of a change in personnel within the Government of Israel,” Kerry said of the political turmoil. “We will continue to be supportive of our friend and our ally, the state of Israel.”
