Bolton arrives in Israel for talks with Netanyahu on Iran tensions

US National Security Adviser John Bolton arrived in Israel on Saturday for talks on Sunday with Binyamin Netanyahu, prime minister and defense minister, on the spiraling crisis with Iran. On Monday, Bolton will be joined by his Russian and Israeli counterparts, Nikolai Patrushev and Meir Ben-Shabbat, for a meeting in Jerusalem that was called to chart common policy lines on Iran and Syria. Their conclusions were due to come before President Donald Trump ahead of his meeting with Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G-20 summit at Osaka on June 28. However, the first trilateral meeting of security advisers was scheduled before the shooting down of a US drone by Iran and the Trump reversal of a US reprisal and may have been overtaken by these events..
