Lapid meets with Harris: We agree that Palestinians should have a good life and hope (Edit: Aviad Ballali)

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will ask Foreign Minister Yair Lapid at their meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) to limit Chinese involvement in the Israeli economy, a senior US State Department official said in a briefing to reporters ahead of the meeting.

"As we have raised with all our partners, we will raise the issue of China and be honest about the risks inherent in Chinese investments," the senior official said.

"The United States sees China as a competitor challenging the world order."



Since the new Israeli government took office, the Biden administration has raised little of the Chinese issue. CIA chief Bill Burns raised the issue in his meeting with Bennett a few weeks earlier.

Senior Israeli officials have said that the new government has a new policy regarding China and it sees the issue as an issue of national security and not just as an economic issue of foreign investment.

The issue is currently concentrated at the National Security Headquarters, which is leading the talks with the Biden administration.



A senior State Department official said the Biden administration was still interested in reopening the US consulate in Jerusalem, which was closed during the Trump administration.

However, the senior stressed that at this stage he has no new details to provide on the subject.

The US Secretary of State in Linken is also interested in discussing with Lapid the situation in the West Bank and especially the issue of settler violence against Palestinians, as well as the economic and security situation in the Gaza Strip.

The senior official noted that during the tripartite meeting on Wednesday between Blinkan, Lapid and Emirates Foreign Minister Abdullah Ben-Zayed, the establishment of two teams for cooperation between the United States, Israel and the United Arab Emirates will be announced. the second will deal with cooperation in the fields of water and energy.



"We want to implement the agreements in new ways and we are working on ways to expand the agreements," the US official said. "We hope that normalization will also help to promote the Israeli-Palestinian issue."
