Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leaves Israel for the United States right after the conclusion of the first holy day of the Jewish festival of Sukkot.
Netanyahu is heading to New York, where he is scheduled to speak this coming Thursday at the annual United Nations General Assembly.
A close associate of the prime minister who spoke with Yediot Acharonot told the newspaper his speech – expected to concern Iran – will be “great, extremely interesting, with new information that will be revealed and leave a strong impression on the entire world.”
The prime minister is expected to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump for discussions on Iran and efforts to establish peace with the Palestinian Authority.
Netanyahu is also scheduled for meetings with the leaders of at least some of the 30 different nations who reportedly asked the Prime Minister’s Office to arrange time to speak with him on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
