Steve Mnuchin, the United States Secretary of the Treasury, is in Israel this week for a four-day anti-terror tour. He began the tour in Saudi Arabia and subsequently traveled to Jerusalem for various meetings and events.

While in Israel, he met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who thanked Mnuchin for the US's recent sanctions on Iran.

While in town, he met with his Israeli counterpart, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon.
