Biden seeks political boost through ceasefire-hostage deal, Israel’s US envoy says

Part of the reason US President Joe Biden is pushing for a ceasefire and hostage deal between Israel and Hamas is in order to gain credit if his efforts are successful, Israel’s Ambassador to the US Mike Herzog tells Army Radio.

“Biden will see it as an achievement and will want to take credit. It’s is not the main reason, but of course there is a political dimension to it,” Herzog says.

Herzog also acknowledges disputes between Washington and Jerusalem regarding the Israel-Hamas war but asserts that overall relations are “strong.”

“Most of the things that we are dealing with are not disclosed to the public, but are very important,” he adds.
