Netanyahu to Dempsey: Nuclear Iran Threat Dwarfs All the Others
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met on Tuesday evening in the Prime Minister’s Residence with the U.S. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin E. Dempsey.
Dempsey arrived in Israel on Monday for a visit that will deal with the Syrian civil war and Sinai terrorism.
During the visit, General Dempsey met with IDF Chief of Staff Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz and other IDF commanders to discuss cooperation and common security challenges.
He is also scheduled to meet Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon.
At the start of the meeting with Netanyahu, the Prime Minister told Dempsey, “A few months ago I had the pleasure of hosting here your commander-in-chief, President Obama. I very much appreciated what he said about the strength of our strategic alliance, our security cooperation and his statement reaffirming once again that Israel must be able to defend itself by itself against any threat.”
