Blinken puts more focus on Palestinians in call to Israeli counterpart

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told his Israeli counterpart on Friday that Israelis and Palestinians should enjoy “equal measures” of freedom, security, prosperity and democracy.

Blinken’s comments reflected more of a focus on the Palestinians than the pro-Israel policy conducted by U.S. President Joe Biden’s Republican predecessor, Donald Trump.

Blinken made the point in a phone conversation with Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi.
