Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro on Wednesday, taking the opportunity to congratulate US President Barack Obama on his victory in Tuesday's US presidential election.

"I think the United States of America again demonstrated why it's the greatest democracy on earth. The security relationship between the United States and Israel is rock solid, and I look forward to working with President Obama to further strengthen this relationship and I look forward to working with him to advance our goals of peace and security," Netanyahu stated.

Shapiro responded that "Americans are very proud of our democratic system and values and our free elections. Obviously Israelis share those values. The President has enjoyed close security cooperation with you and your government in his first term and we look forward to continuing it in the second term."
