State Department leads discussion on live Arab Radio
On this week’s show, Ray Hanania interviewed Chris Hodges, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Assistance Coordination and Press and Public Diplomacy at the State Department’s Bureau for Near Eastern Affairs, on Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s trip to the Middle East.
