US 'looks forward' to working with next Israeli defense chief

The United States said on Friday it was looking forward to working with whoever succeeds Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, after he announced his resignation in protest at his portfolio being offered to far-rightist Avigdor Lieberman.
"We appreciate Mr. Yaalon's leadership and partnership as defense minister and we look forward to working with his successor," State Department spokesman John Kirby said. "Our bonds of friendship are unbreakable, and our commitment to the security of Israel remains absolute."
