Netanyahu says he expects Biden will call him soon: ‘Our alliance is strong’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he expects US President Joe Biden will soon pick up the phone to call him.

Netanyahu says Biden is phoning world leaders “as he sees fit,” and says they’ll likely speak when he starts reaching out to Middle Eastern leaders.

“Our alliance is strong,” says Netanyahu, while acknowledging some differences of opinion.

Netanyahu and Biden haven’t spoken since Biden took office.
