Selin ATAY-TDO- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he agreed with new US President Joe Biden on many issues, but they had different views on Iran and Palestine.
In an interview with Israel-based television, Netanyahu shared his remarks on the agenda. Netanyahu was reminded during the interview that Biden had not called him, even though it had been about 4 weeks since he took office. " Biden “is making calls to world leaders according to the order he sees fit,” Prime Minister of the State of Israel said. “The Israel-U.S. alliance is strong and so is our friendship of almost 40 years, though we may not agree on everything," he added.
Gilad Erdan, Israel's Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations in New York, made statement on Joe Biden had not called the Tel Aviv administration after being elected president of the United States. "The prime minister does not worry about the time of the meeting," Erdan said.
On February 11, White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated that Joe Biden would call Netanyahu "soon." However, Biden hasn't called Israel's Netanyahu yet. On the other hand, in his first three weeks in office, the US President has made a flurry of phone calls to Washington allies around the world, including the leaders of Canada, Britain, France and Japan.
The contrast between Biden and Donald Trump is stark: Donald Trump called Israel PM within two days of taking office in 2017.
