Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon on Wednesday stressed the unique nature of the US-Israel relationship.
"We have excellent relations with the US and its uniqueness is that regardless of minor disputes, the overall relationship is never affected," Ayalon told the Jerusalem Conference on US-Israel relations.
"Every facet of our relationship bodes well and is the cornerstone for stability in our region," Ayalon continued. "We welcome the important work of Senator Mitchell who came recently to the region and placed an offer on the table. Israel accepted and we are still waiting to hear from the Palestinians."
