Meeting with visiting US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Sunday voiced Israel’s concerns over the possibility of Washington removing Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from its list of terror groups as it rejoins the nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic. During a joint press conference with the top American diplomat at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem, Bennett thanked the US for its support and commitment to Israel and its security.

The premier also thanked Blinken for his efforts “to further and expand” the Abraham Accords. “The Middle East is changing and it’s changing for the better,” Bennett said. “We’re working together to overcome the forces of darkness and build a new future.” His comments came hours before Blinken was set to join his counterparts from Israel, the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and Egypt at a special summit in the Negev, which Bennett hailed as “historic.”
