US President Joe Biden tells the leaders of Chile and the Dominican Republican during separate White House meetings earlier today that Washington will continue to back Israel’s right to defend itself “in line with international humanitarian law” and that the US will continue working to increase humanitarian assistance for civilians in Gaza.

The talking points are included at the end of both White House readouts from Biden’s meetings with Chile President Gabriel Boric and the Dominican Republic President Luis Abinader, the former of whom has been outspoken in his criticism of the Israeli military operation in Gaza and recalled his country’s ambassador to Israel.
