“There is no shift in my commitment to the security of Israel — period,” Mr. Biden said at a press conference at the White House with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. “I think that my party still supports Israel.”
The president recommitted to pushing for a two-state solution and said he planned to put together a package to help rebuild homes in Gaza after the most recent conflict.
“They need the help, and I’m committed to get that done,” the president said.
“From the very beginning, I told him what our objective was, that there needed to be a cease-fire and he, in fact, kept his commitment in a time frame in which he said he would do it,” the president said.
Mr. Biden and Mr. Netanyahu spoke at least six times in recent weeks as the conflict raged and other countries had called for a cease-fire.
