Blinken on Wednesday met with his counterparts of Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the State Department over bilateral and trilateral cooperation as well as regional security issues, including Iran.

During a joint press conference after their trilateral meeting, Blinken reiterated that diplomacy is the most effective way to ensure that Iran would not develop a nuclear weapon.

"We are prepared to turn to other options if Iran doesn't change course," he said

  1. Israel reclama el "derecho" y la "responsabilidad" de utilizar cualquier medida necesaria contra Irán en el momento oportuno debido a la amenaza que, consideran, representa el país en materia nuclear, declaró este miércoles el ministro de Asuntos Exteriores israelí Yair Lapid, tras el encuentro con su homólogo emiratí, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahayan, y el secretario de Estado de EE.UU., Antony Blinken, en Washington D.C.

    "Israel se reserva el derecho de actuar en cualquier momento y de cualquier forma. No es solo nuestro derecho, sino también nuestra responsabilidad", aseguró el canciller israelí.
