U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Niles reiterated his support for Israel in its self-defense against Iran, during a meeting with the Foreign Press Association in Jerusalem on Wednesday.

Nides also expressed President Joe Biden‘s commitment to the so-called “two-state solution,” to the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Nides said Biden’s support for the Palestinians has to do with support for people, not politics, and the president strongly believes in the preservation of Israel as a Jewish and Democratic state.
