Blinken discusses Gaza ceasefire proposal with Saudi, Turkish and Jordanian FMs

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has held separate phone calls with foreign ministers from Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Jordan, the State Department says, to discuss a proposed hostage-for-ceasefire deal aimed at ending the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.

The top US diplomat, conducting the calls on the plane as he flew back to Washington from Prague, underscored to his counterparts that the proposal is in the interests of both Israelis and Palestinians, State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller says.
