Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said that he would accept Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s invitation to visit the country on the condition that it made progress in talks with Russia, Ynet learned on Monday.

Sources said that Zelensky and other senior officials have been pushing for a visit by Bennett to Kyiv for the past 10 days, as they think that could speed up ceasefire talks with Russia.

The Prime Minister’s Office asked the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) to make arrangements for securing Bennett’s possible trip to Kyiv on short notice. However, according to the report, some security officials are against such a visit because of the risks involved.

Ukraine has also invited U.S. President Joe Biden to visit during his visit to Europe this week, but for now, the White House has ruled that out.
