The joint meetings with the the US Senate and House of Representatives' intelligence, defense and foreign relations committees will renew interparliamentary work after an interruption of several years, due to elections in Israel and the US.

The lawmakers will discuss the F-35 plane and other air defense projecs.

The MKs also plan to meet with senior State Department and National Security Council officials and visit think tanks, including the Washington Institute and Brookings Institute.
