Israel and the US continue to share a strong connection despite perceived differences with the current Obama administration, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in an interview with Channel 1 that aired Friday night.

The prime minister admitted that while Obama administration's approach towards Israel may be different from that of past US administrations, the US and Israel still share the same goals of preventing a nuclear Iran as well as achieving peace between Palestinians and Israelis."There is a fundamental connection in basic interests between the US and Israel in two areas. One, to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. And two, to achieve an immediate peace between the Palestinian and Israel," emphasized Netanyahu.
