The Fellowship | March 7, 2017
Yesterday, Donald Trump called Israeli PM Netanyahu in order to discuss Iran. The Times of Israel’s Raphael Ahren reports that the two leaders discussed an Iranian missile test that occurred over the weekend, as well as the Islamic Republic’s ongoing acts of belligerence:
The two leaders talked “at length” about the “dangers emanating from Iran and Iranian aggression in the region and the need to work together to deal with these threats,” according to a readout from the Prime Minister’s Office.
During the phone call, Netanyahu thanked Trump for the warm welcome he received last month in the White House.
The prime minister also expressed his gratitude to the US president for his “forceful statement against anti-Semitism,” during his speech last week to a joint meeting of the US Congress.
According to a readout from the White House, Netanyahu and Trump “discussed the need to counter continuing threats and challenges facing the Middle East region.”
“The Prime Minister thanked the President for his comments at the beginning of his speech before the Joint Session of Congress condemning anti-Semitism,” the White House said in the statement.
