US envoy previews Biden's Israeli-Palestinian policy at the United Nations

Washington plans to reestablish diplomatic missions with the Palestinian Authority and defend Israel from "bias" at the UN.

President Joe Biden’s administration said Tuesday that it would work to restore diplomatic ties with Palestinian leaders while pushing for an eventual two-state solution, all the while continuing to urge Middle Eastern countries to establish formal relations with Israel.

The new US administration will “support a mutually agreed two-state solution in which Israel lives in peace and security alongside a viable Palestinian state,” acting US envoy to the United Nations Richard Mills said during a debate held by the Security Council on Tuesday.
