Before their meeting in Brussels on Monday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lit Hanukkah candles together.

Pompeo later summarized the meeting on Twitter.

“This evening in Brussels, I met with PM Netanyahu. It was a joy to wish him a Happy Hanukkah as we lit candles on the menorah. Chag Sameach! I also emphasized our commitment to Israel’s national security and absolute right to self-defense,” he wrote.
