The close consultations between the U.S. and Israel on opposing the Iran nuclear deal will soon take official form as the two governments prepare to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), according to media reports on Monday.
Israel’s National Security Advisor Meir Ben-Shabbat is set to travel to Washington to sign the MoU with his counterpart John Bolton, to counter the Iranian threat, according to a report by Channel 10 News Monday night.
Ben-Shabbat and Bolton have spoken on the phone several times since Bolton assumed office last month. This will be the first face-to-face meeting between them.
Also on the agenda will be the problem of the Iranian military entrenchment in Syria, ahead of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s trip to Europe next week.
