US President Trump on Wednesday addressed the inconclusive election results in Israel.

Asked by reporters in Los Angeles whether he’s spoken with Netanyahu since the election, Trump said, “I have not [...] Everybody knew it was going to be very close. We'll see what happens."

"Look, our relationship is with Israel. We’ll see what happens,” he added.

Earlier, Netanyahu canceled his planned visit to the United Nations General Assembly due to the "political context" in Israel, sources in his office told AFP.

During the visit, Netanyahu had been expected to meet with Trump and discuss, as per the announcements made by the two leaders last week, a possible mutual defense pact between the US and Israel.
