Bennett, Biden Discuss ‘Growing Iranian Aggression’
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and U.S. President Joe Biden on Sunday, February 6, discussed Iran’s increasing aggression and possible steps to block its nuclear program, according to Bennett’s office.
The two leaders also discussed the brewing tensions between Russia and Ukraine, and Bennett also congratulated Biden on the operation to eliminate ISIS leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi, according to the statement. “The world is now a safer place thanks to the courageous operation of the U.S. forces,” said Bennett.
The two leaders’ telephone conversation came just hours after Bennett warned at the weekly Cabinet meeting that the deal being negotiated with Iran in Vienna would “damage [Israel’s] ability to deal with the nuclear program.”
“The greatest threat against the State of Israel is Iran,” said Bennett. “Whoever thinks that an agreement will increase stability—is mistaken. It will temporarily delay enrichment, but all of us in the region will pay a heavy, disproportionate price for it.”
“President Biden conveyed his unwavering support for Israel’s security and freedom of action, emphasizing his administration’s full support for replenishing Israel’s Iron Dome system,” the White House said.
Bennett thanked the president and his administration for America’s “steadfast support of Israel,” including the decision to fund the Iron Dome anti-missile system. (INN / VFI News)
