Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant announced “significant progress” in alleviating Israeli concerns about American arms supplies to the Jewish state.

"Obstacles and bottlenecks have been removed to allow progress on a number of issues, particularly the build-up of forces and the supply of ammunition", – Galant said after a meeting at the White House with President Joe Biden's national security adviser Jake Sullivan, the Voice of America reports.

Earlier this week, Gallant met with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.< /p>

The United States is Israel's main arms supplier, but in recent weeks Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has complained about what he says is a slowdown in the pace of deliveries in recent months.

White House officials said that they were dismayed by Netanyahu's remarks.

The White House statement said Sullivan "reaffirmed President Biden's commitment to ensuring Israel has what it needs to defend itself and confront Iran-backed adversaries." – Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Hezbollah in the south of Lebanon.
