GLASGOW — Prime Minister Naftali Bennett meets with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on the sidelines of the COP26 climate change in Glasgow.
This is their first meeting since Bennett became premier, and Stoltenberg’s first meeting with an Israeli prime minister since he took office in 2014.
Foreign Minister Yair Lapid met in Brussels in July with Stoltenberg. At the time, Lapid expressed his desire to deepen ties with NATO and declared Israel’s readiness to support the alliance on matters of intelligence, cybersecurity, counterterrorism, climate change, maritime security, missile defense, and civilian emergency management. He also invited Stoltenberg to visit Israel.
