Biden, Herzog discuss global, regional issues, vow to deepen cooperation

The US and Israeli presidents discussed a wide range of global and regional issues of mutual concern Wednesday and vowed to deepen cooperation between their two nations.

The meeting between Joe Biden and Isaac Herzog at the White House tackled Iran, the Palestine question and the Lebanon-Israel maritime deal, among other things, according to a statement from the White House.

"The two discussed the enduring strength of the U.S.-Israel partnership, ways to further deepen cooperation between the two countries, and the United States’ unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security," said the statement.

They also discussed the threats posed by Iran and its proxies.

Biden “emphasized his Administration’s pledge to ensure Iran will never acquire a nuclear weapon," it added.

Biden and Herzog also celebrated the forthcoming conclusion of an agreement resolving a maritime boundary dispute between Israel and Lebanon, mediated by the US.

The US president "praised Israel’s statecraft and courage and noted that the agreement will set the stage for a more stable and prosperous region and harness vital new energy resources for the world," said the statement.
