Defense Minister Benny Gantz met Saturday with US Vice President Kamala Harris on the sidelines of the annual Munich Security Conference.
Saturday’s meeting with Harris focused on the issue of ongoing Iran nuclear talks, as well as the situation in Ukraine, according to Gantz.
“I expressed my gratitude to US President Biden and the VP for their commitment to preventing a nuclear Iran. I told her that any future agreement must include consistent enforcement by the IAEA in addition to handling the open files in the nuclear program,” Gantz said in a statement.
“I also thanked her for the United States’ important role in maintaining stability in the Middle East, in the face of regional aggression perpetrated by Iran and its proxies,” he said.
“We also discussed the importance of expanding the Abraham Accords, the situation in Ukraine, and the importance of confidence-building measures with the Palestinians. I updated the VP [on] steps I plan to take in order to deepen cooperation with our neighbors in the region,” he added.
