After days of speculation, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed that during Netanyahu's trip to New York to address the UN General Assembly, he will meet with Biden – their first in-person meeting since Netanyahu returned to office.
The two will discuss "the democratic values shared by the US and ‘Israel’... a vision of a more integrated and prosperous region, and the Iranian threat," Sullivan added.
Netanyahu is also slated to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol, as well as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
Before New York, he will stop in California to meet with Elon Musk.
