(JNS) U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan will travel to Israel in mid-January, in what will be the first visit by a high-ranking Biden administration official since the inauguration of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government.

According to reports, key topics for discussion will include Iran’s nuclear program and ongoing Palestinian terrorism emanating from Judea and Samaria.

Sullivan is expected to meet with Netanyahu, Israeli counterpart Tzachi Hanegbi and Strategic Affairs Minister and former Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer, according to Israeli media reports.

U.S. President Joe Biden immediately welcomed the swearing-in of Netanyahu’s new government, saying he looked forward to working with the prime minister, “who has been my friend for decades, to jointly address the many challenges and opportunities facing Israel and the Middle East region, including threats from Iran.”
