STORY: Meeting in London just days before the United States, Russia and other major powers open the next round of Syria peace negotiations, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Saudi counterpart both condemned Thursday’s attacks in Jakarta.
Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for the assault in the Indonesian capital.
“There is nothing in any act of terror that offers anything but death and destruction and so we stand together, all of us, united in our efforts to eliminate those who choose terror and we are absolutely committed to our fight against Daesh, Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab. That is the challenge evidently of our times,” said Kerry.
