The Times of Israel: Meeting Mattis, PM hails ‘welcome change’ of US leadership21 April 2017 | 16:35 | FOCUS News Agency
Hosting Mattis in Jerusalem, Netanyahu — whose relationship with former US president Barack Obama was frequently frosty — hailed the Pentagon chief’s “strong and forthright words” on Iran, and US President Donald Trump’s “very forthright deeds” in launching a strike on a Syrian airbase following a chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime.
“We sense a great change in the direction of American policy,” Netanyahu told Mattis at a joint press conference in Jerusalem.
“This has been appreciated around the world and in our region. I think this is a welcome change, a strategic change of American leadership and American policy,” Netanyahu said.
