"We hope that we will be able to be in a position to make an announcement in the near term," Kerry told reporters after a meeting with Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird.

Kerry said he pays "great respect" to the U.S.-Canada energy relationship and the importance of overall relations between the two neighbors. Canada is the top supplier of crude to the United States, the world's largest oil consumer.

The State Department is in charge of making a final decision on Keystone because the project would cross the national border. Kerry, who was a steadfast proponent of taking action on climate during his tenure as a senator, said his department has a review process underway on Keystone and he would honor it.

The decision to go ahead has already been made, but there is still some heel dragging going on as the State Department continues with the approval process. Obama does not want to face a hostile Senate in 2015 and 2016, which he would, if a few key Senators lose their seats.
