America’s top diplomat arrived in Israel on Wednesday morning for a six-hour visit, to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and discuss the COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. President Donald Trump’s “vision for peace” and Iran’s global aggression.

Upon his arrival, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held a joint press conference with Netanyahu at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem.

Expressing his condolences for the IDF soldier killed on Tuesday morning in a Palestinian rock attack, Pompeo said, “It reminds us of all of the importance of making sure that people all across the world know that Israel has the right to defend itself [and] that America will consistently support you in that effort.”
