Veep in Israel

Posted on March 24, 2008 In Blog

Vice President Cheney was in Israel. His comments to the press with Prime Minister Olmert are posted here.

Key lines from the Veep:
“America’s commitment to Israel’s security is enduring and unshakable, as is our commitment to Israel’s right to defend itself always against terrorism, rocket attacks and other threats from forces dedicated to Israel’s destruction. The United States will never pressure Israel to take steps that threaten its security…On this journey, I am reiterating the President’s commitment to his vision of two democratic states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and
security…America is committed to moving the process forward … It is not America’s role to dictate the outcome. But we will help in the negotiations, and provide all the support and encouragement we can. We care deeply about these issues.”
