The Canadian government officially congratulated Israel on Friday for swearing in a new government after a process that took almost two months to complete.

"On behalf of the Government of Canada, I would like to congratulate Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the occasion of the swearing-in of Israel’s 34th government," Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Rob Nicholson said in a statement.

“Our government will continue to strongly support Israel’s legitimate right to defend itself, by itself ... We also continue to support a bilaterally negotiated two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians based on a commitment to peace and mutual security."
