Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman praised the US as Israel's strongest friend on Tuesday, as media reports of strains in the US-Israel relationship continued to dominate headlines.

"They're the only ones who stood by us in key votes in the UN, the Security Council and on UNESCO. They raised the funding for Iron Dome," he said at a pre-Rosh Hashana toast with his Yisrael Beytenu faction. "We have a good friend in the US. Even if we disagree sometimes, we really have no better friend."
