RAMALLAH, West Bank — Secretary of State John Kerry says he's all in for Palestinian shwarma.

Kerry chomped one of the meat sandwiches after meeting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank.

Asked what toppings he wanted, Kerry said, quote, "I want everything. I'm all in."

After the first bite, Kerry declared, "Fantastic."

Kerry has been promoting Palestinian economic development. His next stop was to a sweet shop run by the same owner across the street.
