The director of Israel’s Mossad spy agency, Yossi Cohen, has secretly met with US President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team, according to reports.

The meeting took place during Cohen’s clandestine visit to the US, where he was accompanied by a delegation of the Tel Aviv regime’s security officials, Israeli media reported Sunday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly put together the delegation, which was headed by Yaakov Nagel, head of the Israeli National Security Council.

Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to the US, was also present at the meetings, where the two sides discussed a range of issues including the Iran nuclear deal, the ongoing conflict in Syria, and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Trump’s team was also briefed by the Israeli side on an upcoming regional conference in Egypt as well as a UN initiative put forth by Palestine and New Zealand.

Officials from the Israeli regime have also asked the Republican president-elect to oppose a Palestinian initiative submitted to the UN Security Council, which would be critical of Israel’s illegal settlement activity.

Trump has already spoken in favor of the Israeli settlements since his election on November 8. It was revealed on Sunday that he has even donated $10,000 to one of the illegal projects in 2003.

The administration of outgoing US President Barack Obama has indicated that Washington would not veto a resolution in this regard under certain conditions.

The proposal is expected to be introduced at the UNSC before Trump’s inauguration on January 20. Pro-Israeli politicians inside the US have advised Obama against taking any last-minute actions to undermine Israel.

The news of the high-profile meeting surfaced days after Trump nominated David Friedman, a hardline Zionist, as US ambassador to Israel.

The strategic choice would likely pave the way toward a controversial decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds.

Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s top aide, has emphasized that the move is a high priority objective of the New York businessman’s administration.

The Trump administration is expected to be profoundly negative for Palestinian aspirations while buoying Israel’s confidence.

Press TV (stylised PRESSTV) is a 24-hour English language news and documentary network, affiliated with Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB).

IRIB is state-owned but independent of the Iranian government in its management, and is the only legal TV and radio broadcaster inside Iran. IRIB's head is appointed directly by the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and is considered to be close to the country's conservative political faction.

Press TV is headquartered in Tehran, and has offices and bureaus around the world, including London, Beirut, Damascus, Kabul, and the Gaza Strip. It bills itself as a third alternative to what it considers to be biased Western media and to Sunni media attached to radical Islamic terror groups; critics consider it a shill for the Iranian regime.

Press TV is the first Iranian international news network. Their global Tehran-based headquarters is staffed with outstanding Iranian and foreign media professionals. Press TV is extensively networked with bureaus located in the world's most strategic cities. They feature often neglected voices and perspectives from around the world with aim to build bridges of cultural understanding, encouraging cooperation and unity between human beings of different nationalities, and races. They bring to light untold and overlooked stories of individuals who have experienced the vitality and versatility of political and cultural divides firsthand.
