Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with former American secretary of state Henry Kissinger on Wednesday night.
"You helped to advance agreements that led to the historic peace with Egypt. It is likely that you have good advice on how to advance a similar goal today," Netanyahu said.
He added that he plans to discuss with US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton "ways to achieve a peace agreement based on a broad understanding with the Palestinian people and perhaps with additional Arab states as well, an agreement based on security, which will give clear answers to Israel's security needs. We have broad understandings with the US on this issue, as on many others; they overcome the disagreements on other topics."
