WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry is heading to the Dominican Republic next week for talks on developments in the Western Hemisphere and will then visit the Arctic to discuss climate change and environmental issues.

The State Department said Friday that Kerry will attend the Organization of American States general assembly in Santo Domingo next Tuesday. Officials said his talks there are likely to include the current political instability in Haiti and Venezuela.

From the Caribbean, Kerry will travel to Norway, Greenland and Denmark, visiting an arctic research station, World Heritage sites and meeting with Danish officials to discuss bilateral ties.
