Biden’s Meeting With Israeli PM Delayed Due to Kabul Airport Explosion

WASHINGTON (Reuters)—Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s meeting with President Joe Biden on Thursday has been delayed, the White House and an Israeli official said, while Biden holds consultations on the deadly explosions in Afghanistan.

Bennett had been due to meet Biden in the Oval Office at 11:30 pm Eastern time, with Iran’s nuclear program high on the agenda. The Israeli official, speaking in condition of anonymity, said the talks were still expected to be held later in the day but did not yet have a scheduled time.
