Blinken in West Bank: I’m here to renew US-Palestinian ties

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Deputy Assistant Secretary Hady Amr are meeting with Palestinian civil society leaders in the West Bank.

“One of the main purposes of my travel here at President [Joe] Biden’s request is to renew ties between the United States and the Palestinian people and to build on those ties going forward,” Blinken says at the meeting in Ramallah, according to a State Department readout. ”

One critical aspect of any democratic society is civil society, and that’s why I’m particularly anxious to have a chance to talk to you. Your voices, your experience, your insight, your advocacy I think are all critical components for the future.”
