Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu flew to London early Friday morning to discuss Iran’s existential threat as top military officials warn that his government’s judicial reform was harming national security.

He departs after a day of protests and will be greeted in London with further rallies against the government’s plans.

The trip is his fourth to Europe since taking office in late December. Netanyahu is expected to immediately meet with his British counterpart Rishi Sunak and with Home Secretary Suella Braverman. It’s his first meeting with Sunak, who became Prime Minister last October.

“Their meeting will focus on the Iranian issue and the need to formulate a united international front against Iran to stop its nuclear program,” Netanyahu’s office said.

They will also discuss Russia’s war against Ukraine and regional issues in the Middle East. The two are also expected to discuss strengthening the strategic ties between Israel and the United Kingdom and increasing security and intelligence cooperation. They will also discuss international issues especially the war in Ukraine and developments in the Middle East and the strategic relationship between the two countries.
