Foreign Minister Yair Lapid meets with US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who is visiting Israel for the first time.

Lapid says Thomas-Greenfield is a “true friend of Israel, who fights shoulder-to-shoulder with us at one of the most complicated international forums.”

The foreign minister says the US-Israel relationship and cooperation is based on a “shared world view.”

Thomas-Greenfield met earlier in the day with President Isaac Herzog. Upon arriving in Israel, she tweeted that she was “looking forward to meetings with Israeli officials to reinforce the strong relationship between our nations and discuss US-Israeli cooperation at the UN.”
