The Israel Bond Leadership Conference in Washington D.C. also met at The White House on June 10, 2014. Specifically, we met in the Indian Treaty Room in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building where we spent 90 minutes listening to three high level briefings which followed a warm welcome by Matt Nosanchuk, Director for Outreach at the National Security Council.

The first briefing was given to us by Jason Miller, Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Director within the National Economic Council who provided us with an overview of the economy of the United States.

The next briefing was given by Laura Blumenfeld, Office of the Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian Negotions within the U.S. Department of State who provided us with a very insightful perspective of Secretary of State John Kerry’s view of the negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

The final briefing was given by Nitin Chadda, Director for Iran within the National Security Council who spoke about the very sensitive negotiations going on with Iran in regards to the nuclear issues. His talk was very candid and certainly highlighted the great sensitivity and urgency with the nuclear negotiations that are currently ongoing.

Overall, the briefings were very informative and very interesting and of the utmost importance.
