Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday thanked U.S. President Donald Trump for his greeting in honor of Israel’s 70th Independence Day.

“Thank you, President Trump! We too have no better friend than America. We are greatly looking forward to your moving the embassy to Jerusalem, Israel's eternal capital,” tweeted Netanyahu.

Trump had earlier congratulated the State of Israel on the occasion of its 70th birthday.

"Best wishes to Prime Minister Netanyahu and all of the people of Israel on the 70th Anniversary of your Great Independence. We have no better friends anywhere. Looking forward to moving our Embassy to Jerusalem next month!" he wrote on Twitter.

Trump announced in February that the United States Embassy will move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by May 14, the date in 1948 on which the State of Israel was established.
