Mitt Romney is calling Jerusalem "the capital of Israel" and is pledging to stand with the U.S. ally.

The U.S. presidential hopeful said in a speech in Jerusalem that America must stand with Israel. The Republican says both countries believe in democracy, the rule of law and opposition to Iran becoming a nuclear power.

Romney also is calling Israel "the startup nation."

Jerusalem is a flashpoint in the region. Both Israelis and Palestinians have claimed rights to the city.

Romney says the United States must be "unapologetic ambassadors" to push to advance the values that the United States and Israel share. Romney says the United States will always stand with Israel, including its insistence that Jerusalem be the cornerstone of Israel.
