Pompeo-Netanyahu Meeting Highlights Cooperation
The Fellowship | January 2, 2019
The meeting between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shows that US-Israel cooperation is as strong as ever:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had almost all of his requests accepted during his meeting in Brazil with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a senior Israeli diplomatic official said Wednesday.
Netanyahu met Pompeo in the capital Brasilia, where the Israeli premier was on an official visit, and both men later attended the inauguration of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
Pompeo assured Netanyahu during the meeting that the planned withdrawal of US ground forces from Syria will not alter Washington’s commitment to countering Iranian aggression and maintaining Israel’s security.
