Secretary of State Antony Blinken was stranded in Zurich after being unable to fly back to the U.S. due to an aircraft problem.

His scheduled Boeing Co. 737 flight was cancelled due to an oxygen leak, leading to embarrassment for Boeing amid a series of technical and safety issues.

Additionally, the incident has raised questions about Boeing’s hiring practices.

During his speech at the World Economic Forum, Blinken blamed climate change and conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East for causing issues such as mass migration and food shortages, emphasizing the United States’ efforts to tackle the food crisis and support those affected.

“Shifting climate patterns force neighbors to compete for dwindling resources, further straining ethnic tensions, destabilizing entire communities,” Blinken said.

“Meanwhile, Russia’s attacks on fields, on granaries, on ports in Ukraine, the world’s breadbasket, have disrupted global markets, making food harder to afford and harming the poor and most vulnerable most of all.”

“In the Red Sea, through which 15 percent of the world’s commerce passes, Houthi attacks have forced ships to take longer, more expensive routes, further raising the price of food and energy,” he added.

“The United States has been and is working intensely to tackle this food crisis and support those who are most affected by it.”
