Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin spoke today to President-elect of the United States of America Joe Biden and congratulated him on his election.
Prime Minister Netanyahu had a warm conversation with President-elect Biden, in which Biden reiterated his deep commitment to the State of Israel and its security.
Prime Minister Netanyahu said that the special connection between Israel and the United States is a fundamental pillar of Israel’s security and its policies.
The two agreed to meet in the near future to discuss the many issues at stake and reiterated the need to continue to strengthen the strong alliance between the United States and Israel.
President Rivlin told the president-elect: “The United States of America has no stronger ally than the State of Israel, there is nothing stronger than the friendship between the American people and the Israeli people, and the President of the United States of America has no greater friend than the President of the State of Israel, as we have proved over the years.”
“As a long-standing friend of the State of Israel, you know that our friendship is based on values that are beyond partisan politics and that we have no doubt that, under your leadership, the United States is committed to Israel’s security and success,” added the president.
The president added that he hoped to work with the president-elect to build further bridges and hope across the region as the recently signed Abraham Accords have done. “I was happy to welcome you to Jerusalem as Vice President, and I would be happy to welcome you here when you come to Jerusalem as President,” he said, and asked President-elect Biden to also convey his best wishes to Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
