Vice President Joe Biden is conferring with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about energy in the region and Israel’s relationship with Turkey.

Biden spoke with Netanyahu by phone on Friday in what the White House described as a follow-up to their meeting last week during a summit in Switzerland. The call comes the same day that reports emerged citing leaked documents showing the U.S. and British spied on Israeli drones for years.

Biden also spoke Friday to Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades. The White House says Biden updated Anastasiades on his talks with Turkish officials about resolving the long-running dispute over Cyprus.

The two leaders also discussed a new agreement among Cyprus, Greece and Israel to boost cooperation. The White House calls it a positive step for regional security.
