US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro on Wednesday touted the state of bilateral relations between Jerusalem and Washington, and said the alliance was crucial in garnering international support for IDF Operation Pillar of Defense.

"I'm proud of US support for Israel during the crisis," Shapiro said at The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in Herzliya. "[US Secretary of State Hillary] Clinton, [US President Barack] Obama and [US envoy to UN Susan] Rice's comments of support were crucial to securing international support for Israel."

Shapiro added that the "Israel-US relationship is based on the commitment of American people to supporting Jewish state in its historic Jewish homeland."
