Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrives at the airport, ahead of his first official trip to the United States.

“We are bringing a new spirit of cooperation with us,” says Bennett before making his way into the plane, referring to the new governments in Israel and the US. “I have no doubt that this new spirit of cooperation has contributed, and will continue to contribute, to the security of Israel.”

Bennett says that he and US President Joe Biden will discuss the Iranian nuclear program, especially the advances that have been made in the last years.

“We will plan how to block the Iranian nuclear program,” he says.

He adds that he and Biden will also discuss several initiatives that will help Israel maintain its qualitative military edge, along with trade, technological innovation, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
