US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is expected to visit the Zionist entity next week in what will be the first cabinet-level tour to the occupation regime for the administration of US President Joe Biden, Axios reported on Tuesday.
According to the report, Austin will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz.
The talks are expected to focus on the regional agenda, including “security threats from Iran, Lebanon and Syria,” Axios reported.
The Pentagon refused to confirm the trip in line with its policy of keeping the defense chief’s travels secret for security reasons.
