"We look at this region and we see that a secure and strong Israel is in the interest of the United States," Burns said in a press conference following the signing of an agreemnt to up military aid to Israel to USD 30b over the next ten years. "The Middle East is more dangerous today than it was 10, 20 year ago…The regional dangers seem only to increase as Iran develops nuclear technologies and along with Syria supports organizations like Hamas, Hizbullah and the Islamic Jihad," he said. "We will continue to show the same support to our other allies in the region, like Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain...the road to peace includes showing countries like Iran and Syria that the US reinforces its allies' militaries. Every peace agreement in the region was signed with that notion in mind," he added.
