PM Netanyahu: I'm leaving for Washington to ensure the future of Israel

PM Netanyahu said he expected President Trump’s peace plan for the Middle East to be historic ahead of his trip to Washington. “An opportunity such as this comes once in history and cannot be missed,” he said.

“Today, we have in the White House the greatest friend that Israel has ever had; therefore, we have the greatest opportunity that we have ever had.

For three years, I have spoken with President Trump and his staff about our most vital national and security needs, which must be included in any diplomatic arrangement.

I have found an attentive ear in the White House to these needs. Therefore, I am full of hope that we are on the verge of a historic moment in the annals of our state.

I am leaving for Washington with a sense of great mission, of great responsibility and of great opportunity, which will not recur, to ensure the future of Israel.”
