In call with new FM Cohen, Blinken notes US opposition to moves imperiling 2-state solution

Foreign Minister Eli Cohen speaks with his US counterpart Antony Blinken shortly after the new minister’s inaugural address to Israel’s diplomats. According to Cohen, the two speak about expanding the Abraham Accords to include new countries, and on cooperation to prevent Iran from achieving a nuclear weapon.

Cohen says he told Blinken that Israel-US ties are the government’s top priority.

The US readout adds that Blinken stressed the continued commitment by US President Joe Biden’s administration to a two-state solution and its opposition to Israeli policies that endanger its viability.

Blinken congratulates Cohen and stresses America’s unwavering commitment to Israel’s security, according to the Israeli readout.

Israel’s top diplomat explains his approach to the Palestinian issues, and emphasizes how serious the Palestinian effort to bring the conflict to the International Court of Justice is. Cohen also thanks the US for its support on the ICJ vote.
