Blinken rushes to West Asia to maintain truce


WASHINGTON, May 24

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is heading to West Asia to press the Israelis, Palestinians and regional players to build on last week’s Gaza ceasefire by laying the groundwork for an eventual resumption in long-stalled peace talks.

President Joe Biden announced Blinken would depart for a short visit to Israel, the West Bank, Jordan and Egypt for what would be the Biden administration’s highest-level in-person meetings on the crisis that erupted earlier this month. — AP
