The Prime Minister thanked US Secretary of State Blinken for his visit to the region and for the American administration’s support for Israel as well as its commitment to Israel’s security.

Prime Minister Bennett and US Secretary of State Blinken discussed a range of topics including the crisis between Ukraine and Russia and the Israeli efforts to mediate on the issue.

The two also discussed the situation in the Middle East and the warming in relations between Israel and the countries of the region, particularly the strengthening of the Abraham Accords and taking them to the next stage by adding economic, cultural and security content.

The Prime Minister and the Secretary of State also discussed Iranian aggression in the region such as was expressed over the weekend in the Houthi attack on Saudi Arabia.

Prime Minister Bennett reiterated the Israeli position on the Vienna talks and the nuclear agreement and emphasized Israel’s opposition to removing the IRGC from the list of terrorist organizations (the FTO).

Prime Minister Bennett expressed his appreciation, and conveyed his gratitude to US President Joe Biden, for the American support for the Iron Dome system, as the President promised in his meeting with the Prime Minister last August.
