Opposition leader Yair Lapid will fly to Washington, DC next week, Israeli media reported on Tuesday.
Lapid is set to meet with Congress members and senior officials in the Biden administration. The visit comes as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been waiting for a date to visit Washington and meet with US President Joe Biden.
Netanyahu is set to visit the US for the UN General Assembly in September, during which he may meet with Biden, although both sides have said no date has been set for such a meeting.
