Blinken to Lapid: The United States and Israel share common goals

Relations between the United States and Israel are based on shared values and interests.

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said this in a meeting with Foreign Minister Yair Lapid in Rome.

“We have the same goals, but sometimes we disagree on tactics. I think we are quite frank with each other, as we should be,” Blinken said.

According to the American secretary of state, he will offer Lapid a more “hopeful future for everyone, Palestinians and Israelis alike.”

America supports expanding the Abrahamic Accords, he said. Washington also intends to help resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
