Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu embarked last night on his first trip to the United States since entering his current term. Netanyahu will visit a series of businesspeople in California, including Elon Musk, and then continue to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, where he will meet with President Biden.

Before his departure for a diplomatic visit to the United States, Netanyahu said, "I am now heading to the UN General Assembly, where I will represent Israel to the nations of the world. During these days, I will also meet with many world leaders, including President Biden, with whom I will discuss, among other things, Iran and the expansion of the peace circle. I will also meet with the Chancellor of Germany, the President of Ukraine, the President of Turkey, and many other leaders from Asia, Europe, and Africa."

"I have to say that it's quite exciting to see the multitude of meeting requests. Unfortunately, I cannot meet with all the leaders who have requested, but I hope to meet with most of them."

I suggest to Iran not to threaten us

"Today, the world sees, and I will emphasize this, that Iran is violating all its commitments, that it is lying brazenly, that it intends both to develop nuclear weapons and to continue its aggression in the region. We will confront both of these things together. I have heard the threats that came from one of the Iranian regime officials today, and I suggest to him not to threaten us. He should know, and this regime should know, that we will respond forcefully to any attack on our people and our citizens.

"At the beginning of this visit, I will visit California. I intend to meet there with a person who is currently leading the most dramatic development in human technology in modern times, and perhaps altogether, Elon Musk. I will discuss with him the topic of artificial intelligence and also encourage investment in Israel in the coming years. This individual significantly shapes the path that will change the face of humanity and will also change the face of the State of Israel. Israel should be a leader in the subject of artificial intelligence, and just as we made it a leader in the cyber subject, so we will do in this field as well."
