Netanyahu: US Vice President Biden may visit Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says staffers for US Vice President Joe Biden are arriving in Israel ahead of Biden’s possible visit to the country.

At a Cabinet meeting Sunday, Netanyahu cited media reports that Biden was considering visiting Israel in the coming days. He said Biden’s staff is landing in Israel Sunday, but dates for a visit have not been set. Last month, Biden met Netanyahu in Davos, Switzerland shortly after the US lifted sanctions on Iran as part of a nuclear deal. The US has sought to soften Israel’s concerns on the deal through discussions about a new long-term agreement on US military aid for Israel.
