U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is set to visit Israel later this month for the first time since taking office, Army Radio reported.
The Pentagon chief will reportedly arrive in Israel on April 21.
Hagel discussed the planned visit with his Israeli counterpart Moshe (Bogie) Ya'alon during a recent telephone call.
Hagel replaced Leon Panetta as defense secretary in February, following a confirmation process during which some critics questioned whether Hagel was supportive enough of Israel.
Iran's nuclear program is expected to be the focus of the talks Hagel will hold with Israeli officials during his visit.
There has been a recent flurry of visits to Israel by top U.S. government officials. Barack Obama made his first visit as president to Israel in March. He was accompanied by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who returned to Israel on Sunday for another visit and is trying to restart the stalled Israel-Palestinian peace process.
