Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni speaks with Benjamin Netanyahu following the victory of his right-religious bloc in the elections.

Meloni congratulated him on his victory in the elections and the two discussed an upcoming meeting between the two governments, Italy’s support for Israel in international forums, and the deepening of ties and relations between the countries, according to a statement from Netanyahu’s office.

Meloni was elected last month becoming Italy’s first far-right leader since Mussolini in World War II.

Netanyahu is on track to put together Israel’s most right-wing government yet, reliant on the far-right Religious Zionism party.
