The US secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin visits Israel amidst Iran Nuclear Deal talks. Lloyd is the first representative of the Biden Administration to visit Israel.
Israel PM Benjamin Nyentahu has a contradictory stance to that of Lloyd's.
Israel Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Israel views the US as a full partner and hopes to work closely and will work closely with its ally to ensure any new diplomatic accord with Iran does not compromise regional security.
Austin’s two-day visit comes just days after talks restarted on reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Washington said it offered “very serious” ideas on reviving the hobbled agreement that is staunchly opposed by Israel.
Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Nyentahu has been against the deal and has praised Donald Trump's withdrawal from the deal.
