Israeli Ambassador Meets Rex Tillerson, Netanyahu Invites US Secretary of State to Israel

Trump’s new top diplomat off to a warm start with Israel’s leadership, will soon visit Jewish state

By |

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, got a chance to personally congratulate new US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the day of his confirmation when both men attended the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month.

Danon was among some 100 foreign dignitaries invited to the annual event.

Danon and Tillerson discussed Israel’s treatment at the UN, and the Israeli thanked the Trump Administration for appointing as its new ambassador to the UN former governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, who has vowed unwavering defense of the Jewish state.

On Tuesday, shortly after touching down in Washington, DC for his first meeting with President Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu invited Tillerson to visit Israel in the near future to continue their discussions on pressing matters such as Iran.
