Prime Minister Naftali Bennett hosts US Secretary of State Antony Blinken for talks at his office in Jerusalem.

Bennett’s office says the two discussed the Russian invasion of Ukraine and Israeli mediation efforts; regional issues and “strengthening” the normalization agreements between Israel and Arab nations; and Iran’s “regional aggression,” with the premier noting this weekend’s attack on Saudi Arabia by Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen.

“The prime minister again stressed Israel’s position regarding the Vienna talks and the nuclear deal, emphasizing Israel’s opposition to removing the Revolutionary Guards from the the list or terror organizations,” a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office says.

There is no immediate readout from the State Department on what was discussed during the meeting.
