Israeli Ambassador Oren (L)


“I want to thank Ambassador Oren for meeting with me to discuss issues of mutual concern to our two countries.  Israel is one of America’s strongest allies.  We share common values, and fight common enemies in the form of violent extremism.  The people of Israel have sacrificed for the sake of peace and stability.  With change coming rapidly to the Middle East, the United States is committed to standing by our close ally to maintain peace and stability in the region.”
