Szubin will stress to his Israeli hosts the administration's commitment to bolstering defense cooperation with Jerusalem, particularly as it relates to deterring pro-Iranian terrorist elements and others who wish to destabilize the region.

The treasury official is due to meet with Foreign Ministry director-general Dore Gold, National Security Adviser Yossi Cohen, and Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz.

Szubin is important since he is the top official who is the most well-versed in the details of the sanctions regime that has been imposed on Iran. He is also reported to have taken a substantial part in the nuclear negotiations with Iran.
