Unlike the days during the former Obama administration, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu awaits the arrival of US President Donald Trump, confident there will not be tension between Jerusalem and Washington as was the case during the previous US administration.

Prime Minister Netanyahu on Thursday, 8 Iyar,at his meeting with Romanian Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu, made the following remarks:

“I look forward to discussing with President Trump the best ways to advance peace. This is something we fervently share with the President. I heard President Abbas yesterday say that they teach, Palestinians teach their children peace. That’s unfortunately not true. They name their schools after mass murderers of Israelis and they pay terrorists. But I hope that it’s possible to achieve a change and to pursue a genuine peace. This is something Israel is always ready for. I’m always ready for genuine peace.”
