McCarthy pledges to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons in Israel

US Congress President Kevin McCarthy vowed that his country would work with Israel to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

McCarthy said in his speech yesterday, Monday, at the opening of the summer session of the Israeli Knesset in West Jerusalem, that “Iran will never have a nuclear weapon.”

“The bond between Tel Aviv and the United States of America is close and unbreakable,” he added.

McCarthy criticized the UN for its stance on Israel, promising to “stop these attacks”.

In 25 years, for the first time in 25 years, a President of the US Congress addresses the Israeli Knesset, as Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the Congress, addressed the Knesset on May 26, 1998.

For his part, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “The first and most urgent task is the joint efforts of Israel and the United States to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.”

He added: “The need to prevent Iran’s nuclear weapons will remain Israel’s top priority during the Knesset summer session, as will our determination to confront Iran’s regional puppets.”

Netanyahu added: “We will not allow Iran to gain a foothold on our borders militarily, and we will do everything possible to prevent it from obtaining nuclear weapons.”

Regarding internal Israeli disputes, Netanyahu said: “My friends and I are committed to reaching a broad consensus on judicial reform.”

In his speech as leader of the opposition, Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid vowed to “make every effort to keep Israel a living democracy.”

And on Sunday, the president of the US Congress arrived in Israel, where he met with a number of officials in the country, including Netanyahu and Israeli President Isaac Herzog.
