Gov. Cuomo to Pres. Rivlin: We Understand Your Need to Protect Your Citizens


In a working meeting that was held today (Wednesday) between President Reuven Rivlin and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, the New Yorker expressed his support to the State of Israel and her people. 

"We fully understand the need for you to protect your citizens in a war that has been forced upon you," he said.

Governor Cuomo and several other US lawmakers arrived in Israel yesterday (Tuesday) for a two-day visit to show their solidarity with Israel.  During their visit they have been meeting with senior Israeli officials, and are also here to speak with some of the residents of the south, who have been so affected by the recent rocket fire from Gaza.
