Blinken to Ashkenazi: US opposed to bias against Israel in intern'l forums
Blinken pledged his support to a two-state resolution.
FEBRUARY 23, 2021

America is opposed to the biased treatment Israel receives in international forums, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told Foreign Affairs Minister Gabi Ashkenazi when the two men spoke on Monday night. Blinken "noted the United States’ continuing commitment to opposing unfair, one-sided actions against Israel in the multilateral arena," the State Department said in a statement it put out after the call. "Foreign Minister Ashkenazi and Secretary Blinken acknowledged the steadfast partnership between the United States and Israel, and that the two countries would work closely together on challenges ahead," it added.

The call comes two days before Blinken is set to address the United Nations Human Rights Council, a UN body which has passed more resolutions condemning Israel than any other state. Under the Trump administration the US had withdrawn from the UNHC to protest its bias against Israel. The Biden administration has rejoined the UNHRC. Wednesday's speech during the opening of its 46th session will mark the highest level participation with the council since the US left the council in 2018. The two men also discussed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with Blinken pledging his support to a two-state resolution.

Which side of his face was he talking out of?

OBiden has famously said that the US is back and everybody knows based on Obamas parting gift to Israel via a UN vote that an OBiden administration will be two faced.
