Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Wednesday responded to US President Barack Obama's speech at the UN General Assembly, saying the address was proof of the strong relationship between the American leader and Israel.

"Once again it's been proven to all the doubters, President Obama is an ally and friend of Israel. The Obama administration gives backing to Israel's security in a wide, all-encompassing and unprecedented manner," Barak said in a statement.

Barak expressed hope that Obama's speech and developments at the UN would lead to to the resumption of peace talks with the Palestinians.
