Foreign Minister Israel Katz met US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin last night as the 2024 NATO Summit opened in Washington, DC, his office says.

Katz also met with German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and Canadian Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly last night.

He will meet US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen today, as well as South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and more foreign ministers.

His focus in the conversations is on Iran, according to the Foreign Ministry: “Our enemy is also your enemy. The Iranian missiles and UAVs that threaten us are being sent to Russia and threaten you too. Crippling sanctions must be imposed on Iran, and the Revolutionary Guards must be declared a terrorist organization.”
