US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will travel to the Middle East in the wake of a ceasefire agreed between Israel and Hamas.

Blinken spoke twice today with Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi, says State Department Spokesperson Ned Price.

“The Foreign Minister welcomed Secretary Blinken’s planned travel to the region, where the Secretary will meet with Israeli, Palestinian, and regional counterparts in the coming days to discuss recovery efforts and working together to build better futures for Israelis and Palestinians,” Price says.
