Biden postpones planned trip to Middle East

Source: Axios

“President Biden’s visit to the Middle East that was planned for late June has been postponed to July, two senior Israeli officials and a U.S. official said. … U.S. officials told Israel on Friday evening that the visit will be postponed to July because of scheduling issues and the need for more time to work on preparations for the trip, the two Israeli officials said. A U.S. official also confirmed the visit was postponed to July but stressed the reason was the president’s tight schedule with his trip to Europe. The U.S. official said the postponement was not connected to the domestic political situation in Israel.” (06/05/22)
