Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will travel to Russia next Friday for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, his office says.

“The two will discuss a series of diplomatic, security and economic issues involving both countries, as well as important regional matters, primarily Iran’s nuclear program,” Bennett’s office says, adding that Putin extended the invitation to Sochi.

It will be Bennett’s first meeting with the Russian leader since entering office.
