Netanyahu says Israel’s standing in the world improving

Netanyahu says Israel’s reputation around the world is improving. “Israel is embracing the world, and the world is embracing Israel,” he says.

“I spoke last year about this profound change. Look at what happened since. Hundreds of prime ministers and foreign ministers and other leaders have visited Israel, many for the first time,” he says, naming Trump and India’s Modi as notable examples.

Netanyahu notes that he has traveled to six continents in the last year.

“I haven’t visited Antarctica yet. I want to go there, because I heard that penguins are also enthusiastic supporters of Israel,” he jokes.
