US Ambassador to the UN Kelly Craft is visiting Israel and met this morning with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel’s UN Ambassador Gilad Erdan in Jerusalem, the Prime Minister’s Office says in a statement.
Netanyahu thanks Craft for consistently defending Israel at the international body of behalf of the Trump administration.
“President Trump and his team have done wonders to dispel so many of the myths and slanders against the Jewish people and the Jewish state and we are eternally grateful for that,” he says.
“We think there are great opportunities. You can see the Arab countries, some have already come forward, others are coming forward… I think we should continue that policy and we’re going to see many, many more countries, a lot more than people expect and perhaps a lot sooner than people expect.”
Erdan also commends Craft, saying: “You were instrumental in triggering the snapback mechanism against Iran to ensure that critical sanctions remain in place. You truly understand that a nuclear Iran is an existential threat, not only to Israel but to the entire world.”
