MKs take sides in US presidential race

November 6, 2012 19:42

While ministers would not choose a side ahead of the US presidential election on Tuesday, several MKs and parties took a stance for US president Barack Obama or Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

Israel is indifferent to the outcome of the US election, as the Jewish state will continue to enjoy bi-partisan American support irrespective of who wins, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon told Israel Radio Tuesday

Responding to whether Israel expects a potentially re-empowered Barack Obama to apply pressure on Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians, Ayalon stressed that "Israel does not need any pressure in order to make peace or to reach diplomatic agreements."
