US Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Paris for talks with senior officials, including French President Emmanuel Macron.

Blinken, in a joint press conference with French Minister of Foreign Affairs Stéphane Séjourné, expressed gratitude “for France’s partnership on the crisis of the Middle East,” and stated that they’ve been “working together to prevent the conflict that we see in Gaza from spreading to other parts of the region.”

“We’re coordinating closely when it comes to Lebanon and trying to prevent any spread of the conflict there, finding a diplomatic way forward,” he assured.

The US Secretary of State pointed out that they “are convinced that neither Israel, nor Hezbollah, nor Lebanon, nor Iran want this conflict.”
