tv Secretary of State Pompeo Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Deliver Joint... CSPAN March 22, 2019 3:44am-3:57am EDT
landscape has clearly changed. there is no monolithic media, broadcasting has given way to narrowcasting. youtube stars are a thing but c-span's big idea is more relevant today than ever. no government money supports c-span. it's nonpartisan coverage of washington is funded as a public service by your cable or select provider. on television and online, c-span is your unfiltered view of government. so you can make up your own mind. yesterday, president trump reversed u.s. foreign policy by posting on twitter and endorsement of israeli sovereignty. thata disputed territory israel captured from syria in the 1960 76-day war. pompeory of state mike held a briefing with benjamin netanyahu, where they discussed the change in u.s. policy.
pm netanyahu: secretary pompeo, mike, susan, and ambassador friedman, i'm so excited, and we are so excited. sarah and i, to have you here, but especially on this evening. miracle. trump has just made history. i called him, i thanked him on behalf of the people of israel. he did it again. recognized jerusalem as israel's capital and moved the u.s. embassy here. then he pulled out a disastrous iran treaty and reimpose d sanctions, but now he did something of equal historic importance.
he recognized israel's sovereignty, and he did so at a time when iran is trying to use a platform to attack and destroy israel. the message that president trump has given the world is that america stands by israel. we are celebrating when 2500 years ago other persians tried to destroy the jewish people. they failed then, and today 2500 years later, again persians are trying to destroy the jewish people and the jewish state. they are going to fail again. we are deeply grateful for the u.s. support. we are deeply grateful for the unbelievable and unmatchable support for our security and our
right to defend ourselves and everything you do on behalf of israel and for the state of israel in its forms. it is a distinct pleasure to welcome you and susan to our home anytime, but especially today. let me add another word about that. we had a moving visit today to the wall. i can't resist repeating this, but i am going to. i said to the secretary that the visitede pompeo jerusalem, it did not end that well. but this is a different time. rome and jerusalem lashed -- clashed over values. but the united states views itself as a new jerusalem. we visited the original city on the hill. we visited the hill. there is no greater friendship
than the one between israel and the united states, and no one represents it better than secretary of state mike pompeo. you and ambassador friedman and your delegation are exceptional champions of our lives. i have called you so many times on so many things that this evening, i just want to say one word. two, actually. thank you. thank you, mike pompeo. thank you, president trump, and thank you, america. to the people of israel, i say -- [speaking hebrew]
mr. pompeo: i will be very brief tonight. a great visit. susan and i had the chance to visit some of the holy sites today. as a person of faith, it is always inspiring to drive through the winding streets of the old city. we had the chance to visit the church, and the incredible privilege to visit the western wall with the prime minister of israel as the american secretary of state was truly moving and i think indicative of the remarkable relationship between our two countries.
as a cadet, i studied the battles. there's a famous battle called the battle of the valley of tears. it was israeli heroism at its most amazing, saving this nation at a time of a norma's challenge, a threat that came from east, from syria, a battle of epic and historic proportions of amazing israeli bravery. tonight, president trump made the decision to recognize that the hard-fought real estate, that important place is proper to be a sovereign part of the state of israel. president trump made a bold decision to recognize an
important decision will truly be historic, and the people of israel should know the battles they fought the lives they lost on that very ground were worthy and meaningful and important for all time. we've had a chance to talk about a lot of things. there are many threats to israel and the united states will work on together in the days and weeks and months ahead. we'll talk about the threat hezbollah presents to the world in the state of israel and frankly the people of lebanon as well. we will redouble our efforts to make sure we protect all that is important to israel, america and indeed the world. thank you, mr. prime minister. pm netanyahu: thank you, america. thank you.
