Earlier, a US official said the meeting between Blinken, Le Drian, Britain's Dominic Raab and Germany's Heiko Maas would also cover the coronavirus pandemic, Russia, China, Myanmar and climate.
Blinken said that the administration would consider new sanctions against North Korea as well as other possible actions against Russia.
"If Iran comes back into full compliance with its obligations under the JCPOA, the United States would do the same thing."
Ashkenazi congratulated Blinken on his confirmation and the two agreed to continue speaking regularly and meet in person as soon as possible, in light of coronavirus limitations.
Blinken’s remarks on the Israeli-Palestinian issue are cause for concern.
"We'll know pretty soon if the efforts [in returning to the deal] have been successful," the source told 'Le Figaro'.
We know that Haines and Blinken will have critical views of Israel’s settlement policy, and Israel will need to tread carefully not to anger the administration or get off on the wrong foot.
But US, Israel conflict over Iran still likely at later date
Blinken noted that in his opinion, the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran was succeeding in blocking Iran's pathways to producing material for nuclear weapons.
