Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated that there is "an extraordinary opportunity" in the coming months for Israel to normalize ties with its Arab neighbors.

"Virtually every Arab country now genuinely wants to integrate Israel into the region to normalize relations… to provide security commitments and assurances so that Israel can feel more safe," he said.

However, the politician emphasized that the creation of a Palestinian state is even more necessary for this, which, he said, is also in Israel's interest.

According to different reports, the US and its Arab partners are working on a comprehensive plan for peace in the Middle East, which includes the release of Israeli hostages, normalization of Israel's relations with the Arab world, and the creation of a Palestinian state.

This plan has faced criticism in Israel. "Now is not the time to talk about gifts to the Palestinian people. Now is the time for a complete victory over Hamas," said the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
