Before chairing the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday, President Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to show support for Israel’s right to defend herself against her enemies. In turn, Netanyahu thanked the president for his “extraordinary support” for Israel at the U.N.

  • U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called out the international community for not backing the United States when President Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal and bypassing U.S. sanctions against Iran.
  • President Trump also went after Iran in his speech before the U.N., saying that the country was “sowing chaos, death, and destruction.” Trump also called for the international community to pressure Iran to stop them from obtaining nuclear weapons.
  • After blaming Israel for last week’s missile defense incident in Syria, Russia is sending an advanced missile defense system for use by the Syrian armed forces.
  • In response to Russia’s actions, Prime Minister Netanyahu said that Israel will “continue to act to prevent the Iranian military build-up in Syria.”
