U.S. Senators Jim Inhofe, Mike Enzi, John Boozman, Mike Rounds and Congressmen Trent Kelly and Greg Gianforte visited Jerusalem, Israel, this week where they met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, went to the newly-designated U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem and visited the Iron Dome site. Inhofe also published an op-ed in the Times of Israel praising the future of U.S.-Israel relations.
"My visit to Israel highlighted how our strategic partnership with Israel advances American interests and American values.” Inhofe said. “Whether talking with Prime Minister Netanyahu about our mutual security goals with Iran and Islamic terrorism or standing at our new embassy in Jerusalem with Ambassador David Friedman, it was clear that, with the leadership of President Trump, America’s commitment to Israel has never been stronger. Israel is a strong and democratic ally in a difficult region and I am proud to further our friendship.”
"It was great to hear from Prime Minister Netanyahu about the close, productive collaboration our two countries share on many issues, including missile defense, a capability that Israel relies on too often,” Boozman said. “I will continue to support our work together as the U.S. Army acquires Iron Dome for our short to medium range missile defense needs. I was also pleased to see the construction progress for the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem and look forward to its speedy completion."
