At a regularly scheduled monthly debate in the U.N. Security Council, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon welcomed his new American counterpart, Kelly Craft.

In his remarks before the body, Danon said, “We welcome your presence here and look forward to your voice being heard on behalf of the American people.”

In her remarks, Craft, who was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in July and sworn in this month, used the opportunity to express her support for Israel: “The United States has always supported Israel in the past. The United States supports Israel today. The United States will always support Israel moving forward. Israel will have no better friend than Kelly Craft.”

Following their statements in the Security Council, Danon and Craft met outside the Council chamber.

“The United States will have no better friend than the State of Israel,” said Danon in response to Craft’s statements. “Ambassador Craft made it clear today that the U.S. remains strongly committed to Israel and our security. With her help, together we can continue to change the culture at the United Nations.”

In his speech addressing the Security Council, Danon said, “Iran poses the greatest danger to regional stability and security. Iran must be stopped. Not with smiles and handshakes, but with economic, political, diplomatic and any other pressure as necessary. I call on the member of this esteemed Council to act against the Iranian violations and exert more pressure on Iran.”
