Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday spoke with Joe Biden for the primary time because the US president got here to workplace, the premier’s media adviser stated.
“The conversation was very warm and friendly and continued for approximately one hour,” in response to an announcement by Netanyahu’s media adviser.
“The two leaders noted their longstanding personal connection,” and stated they might collaborate to proceed strengthening the steadfast alliance between Israel and the US, the assertion added.
The Israeli premier and US president “discussed the future advancement of the peace accords, the Iranian threat and regional challenges, and agreed to continue their dialogue”.
Biden spoke with Netanyahu on November 17, two weeks after the presidential election through which he beat president Donald Trump, a robust supporter of the right-wing Israeli prime minister.
In his first main coverage speech, Biden didn’t even point out Israel as he spoke of his efforts to solidify US alliances.
Danny Danon, the pinnacle of the worldwide wing of Netanyahu’s Likud Party, lately tweeted a listing of Biden’s conversations with leaders and requested, “Might it now be time to call the leader of Israel, the closest ally of the US?”
In Wednesday’s cellphone name, “Biden also commended Netanyahu on his leadership in the fight against the coronavirus,” the Israeli premier’s media adviser added.
