Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with US President Joe Biden on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York next week, his office says.

The White House has not yet confirmed the meeting.

This will be Netanyahu’s first meeting with Biden since taking office again in December as the head of a hardline government.

Biden has resisted inviting him to the White House and will only meet him on the sidelines of the GA in New York.

The White House has repeatedly expressed disapproval of many statements and policies emanating from members of Netanyahu’s hardline government, as well as with its judicial overhaul plan, which has roiled the country.

Netanyahu will also meet several other world leaders in New York and Elon Musk during a stopover in San Francisco.
