Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Tzachi Hanegbi (Likud) and subcommittee chairmen MK Ofer Shelah (Yesh Atid) and Omer Bar-Lev (Zionist Union) will meet with their American counterparts in Washington D.C. next week.

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.
