Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu boarded a flight to Washington, where he is set to meet US President Donald Trump on Wednesday. "I'm on my way to a very important meeting in Washington, where I will meet with the President of the United States. The alliance between the sides has never been stronger and it is about to become even stronger," said Netanyahu prior to boarding.
Netanyahu added: "President Trump and I see eye to eye on the regional threats and opportunities. We will discuss both matters, as well as upgrading our firm alliance in various areas. I intend to lead and navigate the historical alliance on behalf of national interest and on behalf of all the citizens of Israel."
