Joe Biden will ratify the diplomatic channel on the Iranian nuclear program during the visit of the Prime Minister of Israel to the White House.

Naftali Bennett already held previous meetings with the Secretary of Defense of the United States, Lloyd Austin, and the Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, to whom he advanced the new position of the Israeli Government.

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, and the prime minister of Israel, Naftali Bennett, will hold a meeting in Washington this Thursday. A US administration official has announced that Biden will confirm the "diplomatic channel" in light of his concerns about progress on Iran's nuclear program.

Bennett has repeatedly stated his intention to show a "new spirit" on his first visit to the United States. "I bring a new spirit to Israel ... Despite different opinions, they can work together in cooperation and goodwill," Bennett said via his Twitter account.

For its part, Washington acknowledged that since the previous Administration exited the 2015 nuclear deal, "Iran's nuclear program is accelerating dramatically."

Likewise, they consider that the diplomatic channel "is the best way to stop the nuclear program and roll back Iran's achievements in recent years." However, it has specified that if "that doesn't work, there are other ways to follow."

Before the meeting between the two leaders, Bennett held discussions with the United States Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, and the United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken.

Regarding Austin's meeting with Bennett, the US official explained that they discussed regional, political and security issues, including ways to prevent Iran's regional aggression and its progress on its nuclear program.

For its part, the Department of Defense issued a statement in which the two discussed the wide range of threats posed by Iran's nuclear program, support for terrorism and maritime aggression, and cooperation in air and missile defense and counter-defense systems. Agreed. Unmanned aerial vehicle

He reported that Blinken and Bennett stressed the importance of the US-Israeli partnership and discussed regional security issues, highlighting the Iranian issue.

On the other hand, Blinken stressed his interest that Israelis and Palestinians deserve equal measures of freedom, prosperity, and dignity, which is important in itself and as a means of promoting the prospects for a two-state solution.

From the US State Department, he reported that Blinken and Bennett emphasized "the importance of the partnership between the United States and Israel" and discussed "regional security issues," highlighting the issue of "Iran."

On the other hand, Blinken underscored his interest that "Israelis and Palestinians deserve equal measures of freedom, prosperity, and dignity, which is important in its own right and as a means to promote the prospects of a two-state solution."

The United States dissociated itself from the 2015 nuclear deal. After several attempts to get both sides to move closer together in talks in Vienna, they remain stagnant.

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iran already has uranium purity of up to 20 percent. It has "significantly" increased its capacity to reach 60 percent, which would be a meaningful step in deciding who wanted to make atomic weapons.

BENNETT'S AGENDA

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will present to US President Joe Biden a new Israeli policy and strategy on the Iran issue, which will be different from that adopted by the previous Government, a Tel Aviv political official reported in a press conference before next Thursday's meeting between the two leaders at the White House.

"We have inherited a complex legacy from the previous government regarding Iran," the official said.

After all the rhetoric (Netanyahu's), Iran is very advanced in its nuclear program. There was a disparity between the rhetoric and the outcome, and we need to see how we will prepare to meet that challenge. The right thing to do is to analyze at the system level what Israel, the United States, and other actors in the region are doing to stop the Iranians. Here's an opportunity," he added.

The senior official said Bennett had reviewed Israel's policy on Iran in recent months. He explained that the prime minister formulated a strategy to address uranium enrichment, Iran's efforts to make nuclear missile warheads, and Iranian operations in the region.
