Blinken asks Israel to consider providing military help to Ukraine — report
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during his meetings today with Israeli leaders that President Joe Biden still has not decided whether to delist the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a foreign terror organization as part of a return to the Iran nuclear deal, Channel 12 news reports.
According to the network, Blinken also stressed that the United States would not return to the nuclear deal at any cost.
The report says Blinken also asked for Israel to step up its support of Ukraine, given the Russian invasion, including by considering providing military assistance.
Israel has so far only provided Kyiv with humanitarian aid, as the Jewish state tries to walk a tightrope to maintain good relations with both Ukraine and Russia.
