Netanyahu: 'Israel has no better friend than Berlusconi'

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at Sunday's cabinet meeting that “Tomorrow's arrival of the Italian premier in Israel at the head of a delegation of six ministers is part of a general upgrading of relations between Israel and European governments.”
Netanyahu stated that an “upgrade in relations with influential nations within the European Union is important to Israel, which is the reason I attach such importance to the meeting with the delegation. I very much appreciate [Prime Minister Silvio] Berlusconi. Israel has no better friend in the international community.”
