Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is set to depart for Washington, where he will meet US President Joe Biden on Thursday.
Bennett’s convoy is expected to arrive at his El Al charter flight in the coming minutes. It will be Bennett’s first official overseas trip as premier, and the first time Biden meets with an Israeli prime minister since he took office earlier this year.
On Wednesday, Bennett will meet with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
He is slated to meet with Biden midday on Thursday in the Oval Office.
