Netanyahu: Britain & Israel Both Robust Democracies


Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu welcomed Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom to the Knesset on Wednesday. Introducing PM Cameron to the podium, PM Netanyahu stated, "we have two robust democracies, technological societies, that I believe can seize the future by cooperating together. We have political and security challenges that we want to achieve in cooperation with one another. The first is to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. The second is to advance a secure and enduring peace between Israel and the Palestinians, to which I am committed. And the third is to expand all the other fields of cooperation that we've been – under your leadership – engaging in more and more, including matters that I think are very important, not only to our technological economic capability, but also to the national security of our respective countries. So we have a lot to talk about. I look forward to our discussions and I welcome you to Jerusalem. Welcome."
