The new government in Jerusalem and new administration in Washington present an opportunity to bring a “new spirit” to the US-Israel relationship, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on the tarmac at Ben-Gurion Airport on Tuesday, ahead of his visit to the White House. Bennett said he is “bringing a new spirit of cooperation” to his meeting with US President Joe Biden, which will “bring the State of Israel and its security great achievements.”

“We will take care of many fronts, especially the Iranian one, especially the jump in the level of the Iranian nuclear program” he added. Other topics Bennett plans to bring up with Biden are economic matters, hi-tech, innovation, climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. With regards to the fourth wave of the coronavirus, Bennett said “I am leaving behind me in Israel hope for stabilization.”
