Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed US President Donald Trump at the welcome ceremony held at Ben-Gurion Airport.

"Your visit here is truly historic. Never before has a first foreign trip of a US president included Israel. Thank you for this powerful expression of your friendship to Israel," Netanyahu began.

Turning to security issues, Netanyahu said, "Israel's hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians." He then went on to say that any peace deal would have to mean an end to the conflict once and for all and that "security would have to remain in Israel's hands."

Referring to a greater peace in the Middle East, Netanyahu added, "I hope one day an Israeli Prime Minister will be able to fly from Tel Aviv to Riyadh."

After expressing the hope that the US president's visit would restart the process of "reconciliation and peace," the prime minister concluded by saying that the relationship between the US and Israel was "ever greater, ever stronger."
