Netanyahu meets Trump in New York before addressing UN
A meeting has been scheduled in New York Monday between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump. It is generally expected to focus on Israel’s bid to amend the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. In mid-October, Trump is due to certify Iran’s compliance with that deal, which Israel refutes.
DEBKAfile’s sources say that the tightening Russian-Iranian-Syrian collaboration in Syria, at the expense of the US-led coalition and Israeli security, will figure large in their conversation. The two leaders will also touch on US efforts to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
President Trump is due to deliver his first address to the UN General Assembly Tuesday and the next day meet Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. The Prime Minister, who also addresses the General Assembly Tuesday. has scheduled meetings with Japanese premier Shinzo Abe, Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela, and Rwanda President Paul Kagame.
