Sullivan “reaffirmed President Biden’s unwavering commitment to Israel’s security and expressed appreciation for Ben Shabbat’s contributions to our bilateral partnership,” according to NSC spokesperson Emily Horne.

The two “discussed opportunities to enhance the partnership over the coming months, including by building on the success of Israel’s normalization arrangements with UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco,” according to Horne.

Sullivan “confirmed the United States will closely consult with Israel on all matters of regional security” and “extended an invitation to begin a strategic dialogue in the near term to continue substantive discussions,” according to Horne.
