Mossad chief Yossi Cohen is expected to travel to Washington in the coming days for meetings with senior White House and U.S. intelligence officials, Channel 13 reported on Wednesday.

It will be the first high-level visit by an Israeli official to the United States since President Joe Biden took office.

According to the report, Israel would like to try and organize a meeting between Cohen and Biden.

During these meetings at the White House, the Mossad director is expected to present “formal evidence of Iran’s lies” that “conceals important elements about its nuclear program,” the channel added.

Israel’s goal is to prevent the United States from re-entering the 2015 nuclear deal in its original form – and without drawing concessions from Iran, which has remained adamant that the U.S. needs to remove the sanctions against it before any discussions can take place.

The visit comes as the United States and Iran have both described as “constructive” the indirect discussions that began Tuesday in Vienna in an attempt to save the international agreement on Iranian nuclear power.
