US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told Israeli National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat last night that the United States will consult closely with Israel on any issue related to security in the Middle East, the White House announced today (Saturday).

Sullivan invited Ben Shabbat to open a strategic dialogue on these issues in the near future.



Sullivan told Ben Shabbat that President Biden is uncompromisingly committed to Israel's security, and that the United States wants to continue working with Israel to advance normalization agreements with Arab countries.

The telephone conversation between the two is the first conversation between senior Israeli government officials and senior Biden government officials since the inauguration of the new president last week.



Last night it was learned that the conversation between the two advisers dealt with an initial acquaintance between the parties, and other issues such as the Iranian issue and regional issues and the advancement of the Abrahamic agreements.

The conversation took place as part of a series of talks that Sullivan has been holding for the past two days with his counterparts in several countries that are considered close allies of the United States such as Britain, France, Germany, Japan and South Korea.

Last Wednesday after Biden's inauguration, Netanyahu issued a statement stressing that he expects to work with President Biden, "to expand peace between Israel and the Arab world and to face common challenges, including the Iranian threat."



Netanyahu and his people are worried about Biden's intention to try and return to the nuclear deal with Iran.

Biden Special Secretary Tony Blinken told a Senate hearing last week that there is still a "long way to go" until the nuclear deal is back and stressed that the Biden administration will consult with Israel and the Gulf states before making any decision.
