Biden meets with Israeli leaders, highlighting Iran’s nuclear ambitions


JERUSALEM — President Biden is meeting with senior Israeli officials on Thursday to discuss regional security amid efforts to contain an increasingly assertive Iran as his first presidential trip to the Middle East begins.

Iran has become a central theme of Mr Biden’s four-day trip, which also includes a stopover in Saudi Arabia where he will meet Arab leaders. Israel and Arab countries have worked more closely to counter Tehran. In turn, the United States has sought to encourage deepening regional alliances that could help contain Iran and allow Washington to focus on other regions, particularly China.
