Israel's ambassador in Washington Michael Oren termed Thursday speech by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at the UN General Assembly as "successful and even historic." Oren told Army Radio on Friday that the address received sweeping support in the UN chamber adding, "All in all, it has been a very successful week for Israeli diplomacy." "The prime minister had a very busy and successful week, one can define is as a historic week regarding Israel-US relations." Oren also commended Wednesday's speech by US President Barack Obama, noting his agreement to peace talks without preconditions, the importance he attached to recognizing Israel as a Jewish state and the fact that the US was not insisting that a future peace deal be based on the 1967 borders.
