Blinken Considers New Envoy to Bolster Abraham Accords

(JNS) The Biden administration says it plans to expand the 2020 Abraham Accords begun under former President Donald Trump and is determining an appointee to work towards increasing Israeli ties with Arab and Muslim-majority countries.

Dan Shapiro, who served as U.S. ambassador to Israel from 2011 to 2017, was named by three officials to Axios as the person currently under review. He would join White House officials currently working towards normalization with Saudi Arabia. Such a move would be in line with a recent bipartisan congressional resolution calling for strengthening the Abraham Accords.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has not officially decided yet on Shapiro.
