CIA Dir. Burns to Travel to France for Truce Talks with Qatar, Egypt and Israel

HeadlineJan 26, 2024

CIA Director William Burns will reportedly travel to France this weekend for a fourth round of talks aimed at reaching a halt in the fighting and a release of the remaining hostages in Gaza. The talks involve officials from the U.S., Israel, Qatar and Egypt. This comes as tensions are mounting between Israel and Qatar after leaked audio surfaced of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu calling Qatar “problematic” as he met with family members of hostages. Doha slammed the remarks as “obstructing and undermining the mediation process.”
