After his meetings in Riyadh with the Saudi crown prince and foreign minister, the United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken will visit Egypt, Qatar, Israel and the Israeli-occupied West Bank later this week, APA reports citing BBC.

In Egypt and Qatar, he is expected to push to advance the Egyptian and Qatari-mediated dialogue with Hamas to achieve a hostage deal and a pause to the Gaza conflict.

A truce has already been discussed in detail by US, Israeli, Egyptian and Qatari officials.

Blinken's current visit to the region follows criticism of the US from Israel's National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, who said Israel's ally had not been giving enough support.
