The two-hour meeting covered a wide range of domestic and international issues, including U.S.-Egyptian and Israeli-Egyptian relations, regional threats, especially those posed by terrorist organizations and their supporters and Iran post-Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action.
The Jewish leaders said that they had an open and very productive discussion, and that they were impressed by the president’s analysis on a wide variety of issues. The delegation arrived from Turkey and will soon head to Israel for the annual Conference of Presidents Leadership Conference.
The leaders said, “We came away with a greater understanding of the challenges and opportunities and how we can play a constructive role in addressing them and fostering international cooperation.”
