Blinken Returns To Israel After Arab’s Diplomatic Tour

The United States (US) Department of State announced on Sunday that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will return to Israel after a brief departure. Blinken arrived in Cairo and is set to return to Israel on Monday.

Mohammed bin Salman, the prime minister and crown prince of Saudi Arabia, met with Blinken on Sunday in Riyadh to talk about the current military escalation in Gaza and the region around it.

The Saudi Crown Prince stressed the importance of working to put an end to military activities that have resulted in civilian casualties during the discussion.

He reaffirmed the kingdom’s commitment to intensify communication efforts, de-escalation, and respect for international humanitarian law, including lifting the blockade on Gaza.

The goal is to create conditions for stability, restore the peace process, and ensure the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, as well as a just and lasting peace.
