Defense Minister Ehud Barak praised the administration of US President Barack Obama for supporting Israel's security interests in an interview with CNN aired Monday.

"I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing in regard to our security more than anything that I can remember in the past," Barak stated

The defense minister added that "it doesn't mean that we agree on everything, it's very well known that their are differences between our government and the American administration about the peace process and about other issues, but I believe that in regard to world turmoil, in regard to Hezbollah, in regard to what happens in Syria, in regard to Iran, we basically – basically agree on the diagnosis. We don't agree on the prognosis on some of the issues."
