Shortly after Prime Minister Binyamin officially informed President Shimon Peres that he had formed a government, the White House released a statement Saturday congratulating the prime minister on the news.

"The President congratulates the Israeli people, Prime Minister Netanyahu, and the new members of the Prime Minister's governing coalition on the successful formation of Israel's new government," the White House stated.

"President Obama looks forward to working closely with the Prime Minister and the new government to address the many challenges we face and advance our shared interest in peace and security. The United States places a high value on its deep and enduring bonds with Israel and the Israeli people. The President looks forward to further strengthening those bonds when he travels to Israel next week to meet with Israeli officials and to speak directly with the Israeli people."
