Foreign Minister Yair Lapid meets with US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan in Washington, with talks centered on the Iran nuclear program and the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip.

“The foreign minister shared with the national security adviser Israel’s concerns about Iran’s race toward nuclear capabilities, as well as that Iran is becoming a nuclear threshold state,” Lapid’s office says. “Lapid also discussed with the national security adviser the need for an alternative plan to the nuclear agreement.”

Lapid and Sullivan also discussed the rehabilitation of the Gaza Strip, following the May conflict between Israel and terror groups in the enclave.
