With the concerns in the US about the new government in the background:

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is expected to visit Israel this month. According to estimates, the purpose of the visit is to coordinate expectations between the administration in Washington and the new government in Israel, as well as to prepare Netanyahu's visit to Washington, which is also expected to take place later this year.

A visit by the Secretary of State of the USA is not unusual. This is a common thing when a new government begins in Israel. This was also the case with the Bennett-Lapid government.

According to reports in American media, the Biden administration has in recent weeks drawn up an action plan to "deal" with the new right-wing government in Israel.

At the center of the new "strategy" will be a principle according to which he will be fully responsible for all the actions of his government, without considering his personal position towards the controversial issue, a senior source in the Biden administration claimed to the news website "Politico".

Despite looking at Netanyahu as the responsible adult, Blinken called last week to congratulate his counterpart - the new foreign minister, Eli Cohen. 

"Israel Hayom" learned that in the conversation Blinken confirmed President Biden's words that "the nuclear deal is dead".

Blinken added that the administration intends to harness the European countries to tighten the sanctions on Iran.

In response, Cohen welcomed the American position and reiterated Israel's position that the pressure on Iran should be increased and there should be no return to the nuclear agreement.

In addition, the American minister also raised the Palestinian issue and reiterated the administration's commitment to the idea of ​​two states, but on this point there was no agreement between the parties.

However, the topics during the conversation were raised in general terms, and Blinken did not raise the issue of construction in Judea and Samaria.
