Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has arrived at the White House where he will discuss with US President Joe Biden the importance of strength in the Middle East, a source in his delegation says.
Bennett is received at the White House by Acting Chief of White House Protocol, Asel Roberts.
He has signed the White House guest book in the Roosevelt Room before heading into the Oval Office for his private meeting with Biden.
“In the Middle East it’s not enough to just do good,” he will say, according to the source. “If we want to do good, we must be strong.”
Bennett will thank Biden for America’s support of Israel’s national security and will stress that Israel will never ask the US for boots on the ground.
“We will never outsource Israel’s security,” Bennett will also say, according to the source.
