The White House on Sunday revealed that President Joe Biden will visit Israel “later this year” after Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett invited him to the country.
The White House revealed in a phone call between Biden and Bennett the two “discussed the shared security and other challenges in the Middle East region, including the threat posed by Iran and its proxies.”
In the discussion of the two leaders, Biden also “underscored his commitment to expanding stability and partnerships across the Middle East region, as exemplified by the Abraham Accord, together with Israelis and Palestinians enjoying equal measures of security, freedom, and prosperity.”
The two leaders also talked about Wednesday’s counterterrorism raid in northwestern Syria that led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi.
Moreover, Biden also signaled “unwavering support” for Israel’s security, including “full support for replenishing Israel’s Iron Dome System”.
The two leaders also took time to talk about the chance of further Russian aggression against Ukraine.
