Gantz will meet with US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, CIA Director Bill Burns, former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, former defense secretary Mark Esper, Rep. Ruben Gallego, and Senator Joni Ernst.

Gantz will also participate in a “fireside chat” at the confab with Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg at 9:45 p.m. Israel time.

“The discussion will focus on changes in the Middle East, two years after the signing of the Abraham Accords,” his office says
