US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is slated to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Monday to discuss several US concerns with Netanyahu’s new right-wing cabinet policies.
Following the horrible killing of 7 people in Nevei Yaakov, the bloodiest terror attack in eleven years, Blinken’s plans will be slightly impeded.
According to US State Department spokeswoman Ned Price, Blinken met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi earlier on Monday in Cairo.
In that earlier discussion, Blinken emphasized the significance of the Framework Political Agreement to the democratic aspirations of the Sudanese people and spoke about the necessity of unifying international support for elections to be held in Libya.
The trip to the Middle East will last for three days.
Blinken also discussed efforts to restart a political transition in Sudan and ways to break the impasse between competing factions in Libya with Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry during their meeting in Cairo.
