Corker Statement on Netanyahu Address to Congress

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement regarding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint meeting of Congress today.

“Prime Minister Netanyahu delivered a very strong speech, dispelled any sense of partisanship and focused on what is one of the greatest national security issues of our time. Israel is a great friend and ally to the United States, and it is important that our relationship remain resilient and unwavering as growing challenges in the Middle East threaten the future and security of both of our nations,” Corker said.

As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Corker was chosen to be part of a bipartisan group of lawmakers who escorted Netanyahu into the U.S. House of Representatives chamber.
