WHEN MATTIS AND PENCE WENT TO ISRAEL

Unbreakable bonds?

Like with NATO?

Liberman also met with US Vice President Mike Pence. According to a White House statement, the vice president underscored the "unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel and reaffirmed the United States' commitment to upholding Israel's qualitative military edge." The two agreed on the need to "counter threats posed by Iran and its proxies as well as terrorist organizations," and discussed ways in which the American and Israeli militaries could cooperate to address threats. Syria and other issues in the Middle East were also discussed.

According to a statement by the defense minister's office, Liberman told Pence that he expects to see the US embassy move to a new site in Jerusalem soon.
