Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during a special meeting of the 65th year of the establishment of the Knesset plenum: "our bond with the United States is based on shared, deep values and goals such as regional stability, fighting terrorism, security and peace."
Netanyahu further added: "Even when we have differences with the United States, they are always at the crux of the matter and are not personal. We strive to reach a real peace agreement. True peace is based on recognition of the Jewish nation and on security arrangements that will ensure that the territories will not become launching barrels for terrorists once again." (Moran Azulay)
