WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Switzerland next week for a meeting with his Russian counterpart and to resume nuclear talks with Iran’s foreign minister.

The State Department says Kerry will speak to the U.N. Human Rights Council and meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (SEHR’-gay LAHV’-rahf) in Geneva on Monday.

Then it’s on to Montreux, Switzerland, for the Iran negotiations.

Kerry goes to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for talks Thursday with the new king.

Kerry expects to wrap up a week on the road with a stop in London, for a meeting of foreign ministers from the Gulf Arab states.
