At long last, an official meeting with the agenda of discussing regional security has been set up between Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and U.S. President Joe Biden on Aug. 26.
In a statement by the White House spokesperson Jen Psaki, it is mentioned that the visit would work to strengthen the relationship between the two governments and would solidify America’s commitment to Israel’s security.
“President Biden will welcome Prime Minister Naftali Bennett of Israel to the White House on August 26, 2021. Prime Minister Bennett’s visit will strengthen the enduring partnership between the United States and Israel, reflect the deep ties between our governments and our people, and underscore the United States’ unwavering commitment to Israel’s security. The visit will also be an opportunity for the two leaders to discuss efforts to advance peace, security, and prosperity for Israelis and Palestinians, and the importance of working towards a more peaceful and secure future for the region,” read the statement.
Given that this is the first official meeting between the two premiers, they are most likely to focus on regional and global security issues, including Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
