Meeting US senators, PM says ‘despite disagreements, US is our greatest friend’

Meeting US senators in Jerusalem, Benjamin Netanyahu says that “despite disagreements, the US is our greatest friend,” the Prime Minister’s Office says.

It is unclear what disagreements the PM is referring to, as the two governments have recently seen disputes both over Israel’s policies toward Palestinians and its plan for sweeping justice reform.

Netanyahu met today with Republican Senator Jim Risch and Democratic Senator Alex Padilla. According to the PMO, he spoke with them “about the Abraham Accords and the possibility of broadening them,” as well as about the Iranian threat.
