Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells US President Joe Biden at their meeting in New York that he is committed to ensuring Israel remains a democracy.

Since there are “rapidly changing times,” says the prime minister, “I want to reassert here before you, Mr. President, that one thing is certain and one thing will never change, and that is Israel’s commitment to democracy.

“We will continue to uphold the values that both our proud democracies cherish,” Netanyahu says as hundreds of Israelis protest his judicial overhaul outside the hotel.
