Netanyahu met with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff yesterday at his residence in Jerusalem and described the peace process as the “challenge of establishing peace in our region”:
We have so many threats in the region, you know, we’ll have to discuss. But one dwarfs everything else, and that is the threat that Iran will get nuclear weapons. We can work and will work together, are working together, to make sure that doesn’t happen. And in addition to that we have other security challenges and the challenge of establishing peace in our region. So I look forward to discussing all these things with you, and I know you share our common goals, and you work for them too.
Army General Martin Dempsey:
I do very much, Mr. Prime Minister. First… thanks for inviting me into your home and especially so soon after your [hernia] surgery .. I have spent another very productive day with your chief of defense, General Benny Gantz, talking about all those issues and recommitting and reemphasizing and reinforcing our partnership, so you have our commitment to that.
