White House: Reducing US-Israeli bond to political parties 'destructive'

February 25, 2015 20:51

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Wednesday that reducing the US-Israel relationship to two political parties is "destructive" to the bond between the countries, clarifying previous comments made by US President Barack Obama's national security adviser Susan Rice.

Rice said on PBS on Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech next week to Congress, expected to assail US policy on Iran's nuclear program, injects a "destructive" partisanship into US-Israeli ties.
