“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,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement.
The pair will discuss critical issues related to global security in the Middle East, including Iran, she said.
It will be the first face-to-face meeting between the two leaders and had been in the works since Mr. Bennett’s election in June.
Former President Trump abandoned the deal in 2018, but Mr. Biden has sought to re-enter the agreement. However, progress between the White House and Tehran has moved slowly with Iran insisting the U.S. remove all economic sanctions.
