Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday met New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who is visiting Israel with his family.

The prime minister welcomed Christie to Israel, comparing the Jewish and Garden states.

“You know there are so many similarities between New Jersey and Israel," Netanyahu told Christie. "We’re roughly the same size.  We’re roughly the same population.  I know your voters have better neighbors.  Other than that, there are several similarities and I look forward to discussing how we can increase the cooperation.”

Christie, who is expected to run for president in 2016 if the Republicans lose the current election,  responded by commenting on the trip as his first abroad during his governorship.

"This is my first visit abroad as Governor and there was never any question of where we would come first, so I’m glad we did," Christie said.
