Press Release

WASHINGTONCongressman Brad Schneider (IL-10) released the following statement following his meeting with His Excellency Yair Lapid:

 

“It was an honor to meet with His Excellency Yair Lapid, Speaker Pelosi, Leader Hoyer, and our bipartisan delegation.  We had an excellent discussion of the special relationship between the United States and Israel, bipartisan support for preserving Israel’s security (including Iron Dome missile defense system funding), and our shared commitment to ensuring Iran never gets a nuclear weapon.

 

“Israel’s new government — probably the most diverse in the history of any parliament -  is a testament to what can be accomplished through determined coalition building. It is critical that the United States continue to support Israel, particularly building on the historic success of the Abraham Accords, which holds prospects for a new, peaceful future for the region.”
