The staff of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has met with the head of Israel’s international intelligence agency, the Mossad and a high-ranking security delegation in a visit quietly arranged by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to Ynet.

Mossad chief Yossi Cohen traveled to New York with Israeli National Security Council head Yaakov Nagel, where he was joined at Trump Tower by Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer.

Trump’s team was briefed on the Iranian nuclear deal, the situation in Syria, current terror threats and the situation with the current situation with the Palestinian Authority.

Among the items discussed between the president-elect himself and the Israeli security delegation was a proposal to be circulated and sponsored in the United Nations Security Council by New Zealand on behalf of the Palestinian Authority. The proposed resolution defines settlements in Judea and Samaria as illegal, with an oblique call to the international community to boycott the State of Israel. It is expected to make it to the floor for a vote before outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama leaves office on January 20, 2017.
