Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrived in Washington on Tuesday night in the first diplomatic visit overseas since taking office.
Bennett said in a statement that his conversation with Biden would likely focus on the Iran nuclear deal, the coronavirus pandemic and the international economy.
The prime minister has spoken out against the possibility of a new nuclear accord between Iran and world powers and said that any agreement must also put the brakes on “Iran’s regional aggression”.
Bennett and Biden are to discuss Iran during the two-day visit to the White House.
“One thing is clear: the US & #Israel have no better friends than each other,” the Israel Embassy wrote on Twitter along with a video of the prime minister stepping off his plane.
Bennett is scheduled to meet Wednesday with senior White House officials, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and with Biden on Thursday.
