Speaking of the trip ahead of Sunday’s Diplomatic-Security Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said his trip seeks to further deepen Israel-U.K. ties.

“We are at the start of a significant diplomatic period for the State of Israel. This afternoon I am leaving for Britain in order to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. I will discuss with them how to deepen bilateral diplomatic, security, economic and technological ties, including cooperation in the field of cyber,” he said.

“In the diplomatic sphere, I intend to emphasize the need for a common front against Iran’s defiant aggression, which has raised its head in recent days. This must be done on an ongoing basis, but especially in light of Iran’s defiance against the international order.”

Netanyahu is expected to return to Israel on Monday night. He is scheduled to visit Washington next week, where he will meet with President Donald Trump on Feb. 15.

Before his flight to London, Netanyahu said, “In London and in Washington, I will discuss bolstering ties with both leaders.

“The challenge is that the Iranians realize this as well, and they are testing the limits with unusual of aggression and defiance. It is important that the United States and Britain stand together against Iran’s aggression and set clear limits.”
