, a senior American official said on Wednesday that a team of American envoys will travel to the Middle East soon to hold talks with key allies of the United States.
This came amid mounting concerns in the region about US President Joe Biden’s bid to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal.
“A high-ranking delegation will travel next week to discuss a number of important issues related to US national security and the ongoing efforts to ease tensions in the Middle East region,” the official said.
An informed source said that the delegation will be headed by the National Security Council’s Middle East Policy Coordinator at the White House, Brett McGurk, and the US State Department advisor, Derek Schule.
Although the route of the tour is still unclear, there are initial plans for the delegation to visit Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Egypt and Jordan.
Many of the United States’ allies in the region are concerned that Biden is seeking to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal.
Iran, Russia, Britain, China, France and Germany began a third round of meetings in Vienna this week with the aim of agreeing on the steps that would need to be taken in the event of reviving the agreement from which the administration of US President Donald Trump withdrew in 2018.
