Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu welcomes on Wednesday Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, touted as one of the top possibilities to be GOP’s presidential candidate in 2016.
They traded the usual pleasantries, the Prime Minister stating his gratitude for American support and Rubio pledging to back security in Israel.
“You live in a challenging neighborhood but the Israeli-American relationship is one of the most important ones we have,” said the senator. “Certainly our commitment to that partnership is bipartisan and it should remain that way. And that’s why I’m pleased the President is coming here in March.”
Prime Minister Netanyahu stated, “I appreciate your support. I appreciate the tremendous support of the American people, bipartisan support for our security and our quest for peace. It’s a daunting task, both security and the quest for peace, but we know we have your support and we appreciate it. I look forward to talking with you about our challenges.”
