US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told his Israeli counterpart on Monday that a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was best for the future of Israel, the US State Department said.

Blinken, in a call with Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi, "emphasized the Biden administration's belief that the two-state solution is the best way to ensure Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state, living in peace alongside a viable and democratic Palestinian state," the State Department said.

The two officials also discussed "regional security issues" and "the importance of continued cooperation to resolve these issues," according to the statement.

Blinken "touched on the US approach to a more peaceful, secure and prosperous future for Israelis, Palestinians and the greater Middle East."
