US President Joe Biden’s Middle East policy “will be to support a mutually agreed, two-state solution, in which Israel lives in peace and security, alongside a viable Palestinian state,” acting US Ambassador to the United Nations Richard Mills told the Security Council on Tuesday.

He said the Biden administration intends to restore Palestinian aid and take steps to re-open diplomatic missions closed by Trump administration and will continue to urge other countries to normalize ties with Israel, but recognizes that is “not substitute for Israeli-Palestinian peace.”

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman received a phone call from Iraqi President Barham Salih, Saudi Press Agency reported on Tuesday.—Agencies
