VP Biden Pledges Unwavering Support for Israel

Sunday, 07 Nov 2010 08:52 PM

 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden told Jewish groups that the U.S. under the Obama administration remains a steadfast and unwavering ally to Israel.

Before the speech Sunday, Biden met for about an hour with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss Mideast peace negotiations.

Their meeting was seen as a possible sign of movement for the troubled diplomatic process between Israel and the Palestinians. The peace talks broke down in late September over renewed Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank.

Biden told the general assembly of the Jewish Federation of North America in New Orleans that the Obama White House "represents an unbroken chain in American leaders who have understood the critical strategic relationship" between the U.S. and Israel.
