Lapid to meet Blinken in Washington next week

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid is expected to visit Washington to meet with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken next week.
The trip is expected to be short because Congress will not be in session and Lapid does not have meetings planned on Capitol Hill.
Iran is likely to be a top item on the agenda for the meeting, with talks to return to the 2015 nuclear deal, as the Biden administration hoped to do, stalled for over four months.
Last week, Blinken said of the negotiations: “The ball remains in their court, but not for long.”
