Neither Gates nor Ban has any policy role in anything the press release covered. I wonder what the real reason for the trip will be and who he will really meet with. State handles POLICY on both Iran and the Palestinian negotiations. Gates has no role on policy for either.. The US Department of Defense is not an independent political domain like in Israel. It does the bidding of the President.
