PM Netanyahu Meets with US Senator-Elect (R-Texas) Ted Cruz

PM Netanyahu Meets with US Senator-Elect (R-Texas) Ted Cruz

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning (Monday, 17 December 2012),
met with US Senator-elect (R-Texas) Ted Cruz. At the start of their meeting,
the Prime Minister said: "I'm welcoming you to Israel on your very first
visit. You're a friend of Israel; the United States is a close ally of
Israel. We have not only common values but face common dangers. One of these
dangers is the unfolding events in Syria. We're monitoring very closely the
possibility of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. President Obama has
spoken forcefully about this. Israel and the United States have close
consultations about this issue and it highlights the dangers of these
regimes receiving such weapons and these weapons can even go from there to
terrorist organizations. This is a threat to Israel, a threat to America, a
threat to others in this region. We treat it accordingly."

US Senator-elect Cruz replied: "I look forward to working to strengthen the
already incredibly strong alliance between the United States and Israel. In
my view the United States should stand unshakably alongside the Nation of
Israel. I thank you personally, I thank your nation for its leadership for
democratic values in a very dangerous region of the world, also for your
leadership protecting the security of the nation and ultimately of the
United States as well, with respect to weapons of mass destruction, whether
in Syria or Iran or elsewhere and I look forward to continuing to work
together to strengthen that friendship."
