President Isaac Herzog again says the Israel-US relationship should remain above politics, ahead of elections in both countries and some friction over far-right lawmakers in Israel.

Herzog has delivered the same message several times during his two-day visit to the US.

“We have elections in Israel and you are having midterm elections in the United States. But one thing is clear, and I think this visit epitomizes it best, is that our friendship, our strong bond, transcends all political differences, and opinions and parties,” Herzog says while meeting US President Joe Biden at the White House.

“I hope that together we can continue to work towards the well-being of the State of Israel, the United States, and the world at large,” he says.
