US President Barack Obama said that the US government would continue to fund the Iron Dome missile defense system during a press conference Wednesday held at Prime Minister Netanyahu's Office.

Obama stressed that Americas commitment to the State of Israel is a "solid obligation" and one that is "non negotiable."

"I will ensure no interruption in funding of the Iron Dome," said Obama. He added that his government would be providing $200 million this fiscal year, and would continue to work with congress to provide support for Israel.

He added that the central element of lasting peace in Israel is a "strong and secure Jewish state."
