Gantz flies to Washington for a day of strategic talks

Departing for a day’s trip to Washington on Wednesday night, defense minister Benny Gantz is to meet his counterpart, Lloyd Austin, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and members of AIPAC. Their “strategic dialogue” will range over the Biden administration’s plan to rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal, the Gaza ceasefire and reconstruction. The defense minister is also expected to submit a billion-dollar request to the Pentagon to purchase precision-guided bombs for the IAF and to replenish Tamir interceptors for the Iron Dome defense system.
