The United States is not going to change its plans to provide military assistance to Israel because of the current round of conflict in the Middle East. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated this on Friday at a regular briefing for journalists.
“We have no plans to change the security assistance that we provide to Israel,” she said.
According to her, at the same time, Washington intends to continue “diplomatic interaction with leaders in the region,” including representatives of Israel, Palestine, and Egypt.
The United States has received firm assurances that the current round of bloodshed between Israelis and Palestinians is over, Psaki said. “We have strong assurances from the parties concerned that they are committed to the ceasefire. Of course, we will follow this very closely in the coming days,” the official representative of the American leader said.
