Yesterday's missile launch is the latest in a series of reckless provocations by the DPRK and a serious violation of UNSC resolutions. All Member States must fulfill their obligations to prevent the DPRK from further developing its WMD & missile programs. usun.usmission.gov/remarks-b…

Humanitarians need regular, predictable, and sustained access to Gaza. Member States should provide assistance to help meet the people of Gaza’s needs, incl. through funding @UNRWA. At the same time, we need to see UNRWA undertake reforms to ensure its financial sustainability.

The first step toward resolving any conflict is frank and direct dialogue. So, the U.S. supports the resumed, direct contact between Israeli and Palestinian leaders and welcomes the re-engagement between Israeli and Jordanian leaders, as well as progress from the Abraham Accords.

All of us care sincerely about providing a better future for both Israelis and Palestinians. This is a complex crisis with deep suffering on both sides. Along with bringing balance to discussions, we need to reflect on which actions truly take us closer to the goal of peace.

.@StateDeptSpox on Syrian negotiations: It is essential that the Syrian regime and leaders of the opposition engage constructively in Geneva, consistent with the political process outlined in UNSCR 2254. The Syrian people deserve nothing less after more than a decade of war.
