WASHINGTON:U.S. President Joe Biden will host Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett at the White House on Aug. 26, Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Wednesday.
"The President and Prime Minister Bennett will discuss critical issues related to regional and global security, including Iran," Psaki said in a statement.
"The visit will also be an opportunity for the two leaders to discuss efforts to advance peace, security, and prosperity for Israelis and Palestinians and the importance of working towards a more peaceful and secure future for the region," it added.
The visit will come as negotiations between Washington and Tehran to restore the nuclear deal stalled. The two sides have been unable to settle their differences after multiple rounds of indirect talks in Austria's capital Vienna since April.
