Before Tuesday’s meeting, the U.S. secretary of state said the Israeli-Hezbollah crisis is an opportunity to change regional realities. “A durable solution will be one that strengthens the forces of peace and democracy in the region,” she said. Rice later met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as part of her diplomatic Middle East trip.
