Netanyahu, Sen. Graham, Friedman Tour Golan Heights

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu today toured the Golan Heights with US Sen. Lindsey Graham and US Ambassador David Friedman.

Netanyahu told Graham, "This isn't your first visit to the Golan Heights, but I think every time you come here, you can appreciate the strategic importance of Israel's presence on the Golan Heights and the fact that we're creating a new life here, a green life, a future. It's very different from what was here before.

"The Golan Heights have always been part of Israel since the first days of our history, and it's definitely part of the State of Israel since 1967, and more recently, since 1981. The Golan Heights are part of Israel and must remain part of Israel forever. I think it's important that the international community recognize this fact and accept it, and especially our great friend, the United States," added Netanyahu.

"I thank you for your support, I think Israeli citizens don't know everything I know about the work you did in successive governments, we have no better friend and we appreciate it, thank you, friend," concluded the Prime Minister.
