U.S. President Joe Biden said the United States remained committed to Israel's security and would work with its new government after Israel's parliament ended Benjamin Netanyahu's 12-year run as prime minister today.
Biden welcomed the new government coalition led by Naftali Bennett and sought to reaffirm U.S.-Israel ties.
The White House said Biden spoke with Bennett on Sunday "to offer his warm congratulations."
Biden "expressed his firm intent to deepen cooperation between the United States and Israel on the many challenges and opportunities facing the region. The leaders agreed that they and their teams would consult closely on all matters related to regional security, including Iran," the White House said.
