Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday announced that she is leading a congressional delegation to travel to Israel, Germany and the United Kingdom this week.

The delegation, largely consisting of chairs of “significant” committees and subcommittees, will largely focus on “security, economy and governance,” Pelosi’s office said in a statement

Pelosi will first visit Israel, where she and a delegation of seven lawmakers will meet with Israeli leaders and the civic community to discuss “the prospects for a two-state solution and regional security,” the statement said. 

She will then attend the Munich Security Conference in Germany, which is scheduled to start on Friday and end Sunday. Vice President Harris will also attend the conference.

The last stop on her trip will be London, where the group will “deepen our interparliamentary dialogue on how we can continue to work together to counter antidemocratic forces and advance our shared values and interests in the global arena.” 

It was unclear from the statement exactly the delegation would depart for their trip. A representative for Pelosi didn’t provide such details when asked by The Hill for security reasons.

According to a report from The Times of Israel, Pelosi touched down in the country on Tuesday, and the trip is scheduled for two days.

Accompanying Pelosi to all three stops will be Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Ted Deutch (D-Fla.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Bill Keating (D-Mass.), Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) and Andy Kim (D-N.J.).

Reps. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), Betty McCollum (D-Minn.), Jim Himes (D-Conn.), Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.), Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) and Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) will join the delegation heading to the Munich Security Conference. 

Smith, Himes and Maloney will travel with the original group to London. Deutch, McCollum, Gallego and Moulton are not part of this delegation.
