The US ambassador to Israel James Cunningham on Sunday said that the Republican victory in the 2010 midterm elections in the US would not affect US-Israel relations.

"The US is interested in peace in the [Middle East] region, and this policy will not change," Cunningham stated during a conference held at Bar-Ilan University's Begin Sadat Center for Strategic Studies. He added, "We will maintain Israel's qualitative military edge and help her defend herself from Hizbullah and Hamas rockets."
