WASHINGTON — Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will open his meeting with Joe Biden by offering his condolences on the bombings in Kabul, a source familiar says. “Those Americans lost their lives in a mission saving the lives of others. That is the definition of bravery and sacrifice.”

Bennett will return to the theme of a “new spirit of cooperation” between people who might have disagreements but who can work together to achieve common goals.
