Blinken: Supporting Israel’s Path to Palestinian Statehood is Key to Diplomatic Isolation

The best way to stabilize the region and isolate Iran, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said, is by providing a pathway to a Palestinian state. He highlighted the need for Israel to integrate with security assurances from regional countries and the United States, along with a pathway to a Palestinian state. Blinken warned against the continuation of terrorism and destruction backed by Iran, emphasizing the importance of pursuing a pathway to isolate Iran and its proxies. Blinken visited Egypt and Jordan, where he discussed efforts to mediate between Hamas and Israel, negotiate a ceasefire, and secure the release of hostages. He also brought a proposal for Israel’s Muslim-majority neighbors to help rehabilitate Gaza and continue economic integration, contingent on Israel’s commitment to eventually allowing the creation of an independent Palestinian state.
