US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the US would like to see the pause in fighting between Israel and Gaza extended, and that it's working towards that aim "every single day", in Brussels today, as he's been speaking at a meeting of Nato foreign ministers, APA reports citing BBC.

"Its continuation by definition means that more hostages would be coming home, more assistance would be getting in [to Gaza].

"Clearly, that's something we want. I believe it's something that Israel also wants," he told the meeting.
