US Senator Robert Menedez (D-New Jersey) addressed The Jerusalem Post's Annual Conference on Sunday, calling Israel the United States' most important partner in the Middle East.

"As head of the Senate Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee I will continue to work to ensure there is no daylight between us no matter what happens," Menedez said of Israeli-US relations.

"There can be no existential threat to Israel from its neighbors, period," the senator said.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas must recognize the Jewish state as a Jewish state without equivocation, Menendez said.
