President Biden has taken steps to reverse Trump-era policies in the Middle East by throwing the administration’s support behind finding a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine.
In a virtual speech to the United Nations Security Council Tuesday, acting U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Richard Mills said the one-week old administration supports a "viable Palestinian state," but will "maintain its steadfast support for Israel" – signaling the delicate balance they will try to juggle.
The Trump administration closed the Palestine Liberation Organization office in Washington, D.C., froze all federal contributions to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency – which provides support for Palestinian refugees, and moved the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a sticking point for Palestinians who also view Jerusalem as a holy city that should be in Palestine.
But the former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also helped draw up a peace proposal that allowed Israel to maintain their control in the West Bank, which the United Nations has deemed an illegal occupation since 1967.
