Israel’s Channel 13 said that the government tried to coordinate a phone call between Prime Minister, Yair Lapid, and US President, Joe Biden, about the Iranian file, but it did not succeed.

The Channel said, “When asked by Israeli officials for the phone call, the White House replied that Biden was unavailable as he is on vacation.”

However, the Channel said that although the Americans postponed the conversation, Israeli officials predict it will take place eventually and possibly in the near future.

The Israeli Channel also indicated that Israeli officials were told that Israeli Defence Minister, Benny Gantz, who left for Washington on Wednesday evening, will not meet with his American counterpart, Lloyd Austin, because he is also outside Washington.

“At a time when the nuclear talks with Iran are entering the final stage, it can be said that Israel is not an important factor in the basket of American considerations,” said the Channel.
