Biden administration: Normalization not substitute for Israeli-Palestinian peace

The deputy US envoy to the United Nations, Richard Mills, tells the Security Council that the Biden administration will renew ties with the Palestinians that were frozen under the Trump administration.

He says Washington will urge the government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority to avoid unilateral steps such as Israeli settlement activity, home demolitions and annexation, Palestinian payments to terrorists and their families and incitement against Israel.

He says Israel’s recent normalization deals with Arab nations is not a substitute for Israeli-Palestinian peace.
