Amidst heightened tensions in the Middle East, Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati met with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Amman.

This diplomatic engagement comes as Blinken is on a mission to build support for planning a post-war future for Gaza, following the recent Israel-Hamas conflict.

During their meeting, Blinken expressed gratitude to Mikati for his leadership in preventing Lebanon from being dragged into the ongoing conflict, emphasizing the importance of Lebanon’s neutrality.

The US Secretary of State also highlighted the US’s efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to civilians in Gaza.

The backdrop of this meeting is the broader regional dynamics, with concerns about Hezbollah’s potential involvement and the US’s strategic moves to deter any escalation.
