    The document rejects the notion that "military force is the answer to the region’s challenges."
    "We will not give our partners in the Middle East a blank check to pursue policies at odds with American interests and values," it declared.
    As an example of the approach, the White House cited its withdrawal of the support for the Saudi operation against Yemen's Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, whose designation as a terrorist group has been reversed by the Biden team amid the group's intense offensive on the strategic city of Marib and persistent attacks on Saudi targets.

    Biden's other regional priorities will include deterring "Iranian aggression and threats to sovereignty and territorial integrity," fighting al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups, tackling humanitarian crises and defusing the "complex armed conflicts that threaten regional stability."
