During a meeting at the United Nations yesterday, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield discussed regional security, Washington says.

According to a spokesperson for the US mission, Thomas-Greenfield “reaffirmed United States’ ironclad, unwavering commitment to Israel’s security, and condemned recent acts of terror against Israeli citizens.”

The two spoke of the need to deescalate the situation in the West Bank, which has seen a rise in both terror attacks and settler violence.

The ambassador said the US continues to view the two-state solution as “the best way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and achieve equal measures of security, prosperity, freedom, and democracy for Israelis and Palestinians alike.”
