U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris will celebrate the “unshakeable” U.S.-Israel bond and will “reaffirm the United States’ ironclad commitment to Israel’s security” in a June 6 talk, an unnamed White House official told Axios.

The vice president is expected to deliver the speech at the National Building Museum, several blocks away from the U.S. Capitol and the White House, at an Israeli embassy celebration of the Jewish state’s 75th anniversary.

Previous vice presidents, including Joe Biden, now U.S. president, and Mike Pence, have attended the event in the past, Axios reported.

Harris and Biden have criticized Israeli judicial reform, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has yet to receive a White House invitation since returning to head the government.
