(White House) President Barack Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York on Wednesday. Prior to their meeting, Netanyahu said: "First, I want to thank you for the Memorandum of Understanding that we signed last week. It greatly enhances Israel's security. It fortifies the principle that you've enunciated many times that Israel should be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threat. Secondly, I want to thank you for the extensive security and intelligence cooperation between our two countries." "Israel has no greater friend than the United States of America, and America has no greater friend than Israel. Our alliance has grown decade after decade....It's an unbreakable bond based on common values, buttressed by common interest, and bound by a shared destiny." President Obama said: "It is important for America's national security to ensure that we have a safe and secure Israel, one that can defend itself...and we want to make sure that Israel has the full capabilities it needs."
