Arutz Sheva spoke on Sunday with David Kreizelman, Foreign Policy Associate at the Jerusalem Office of AIPAC, who is currently taking part in the AIPAC 2013 policy conference in Washington.

The conference will deal with strengthening the sanctions against Iran as well as strengthening the relations between the United States and Israel, Kreizelman explained.

“The entire conference is to get people so that on Tuesday morning they will leave the conference, go up to Capitol Hill and lobby their representatives and Senators for that agenda,” he said.

AIPAC hopes the cooperation between Israel and the U.S. in the security and intelligence fields will continue, said Kreizelman.

“In the United States, obviously, there are a lot of economic constraints, and we’re hoping that despite these constraints, we’re going to continue to be working together.”
