National Security Adviser to Visit Israel

Discussions will center on Iran. 

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan will travel to Israel next week for discussions on the stalled Iran nuclear deal. He is expected to meet Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, and Minister of Defense Benny Gantz. 

The Israeli government is concerned that President Biden’s administration could opt for a “less for less” deal with Iran if the path back to the original agreement remains stuck. Israeli officials claim such a deal will give Iran sanctions relief without rolling back its nuclear program. Iran has already requested such relief, in full. 

Advisor Sullivan recently floated the idea of an interim agreement if a return to the 2015 deal proves impossible. Although the White House has declined to comment on Sullivan’s travel plans, Israeli officials say he is also expected to visit Ramallah for meetings with Palestinian officials. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan as he undertakes meetings with both Israeli and Palestinian officials. 
  • For U.S. officials evaluating a potential Iran nuclear deal and Iran’s request to have all sanctions lifted. 
  • For the security of Israel as Iran continues to verbally threaten that nation.
