John Kerry: 'We've Never had a Better Relationship with Israel'


Secretary of State John Kerry was on ABC News this past Sunday where he made a funny in trying to explain away the Obama administrations Israel "problem." Kerry says that far from being at enmity with Israel, our international friendship has never been closer!

Well, look, we're not -- the prime minister of Israel is welcome to speak in the United States, obviously. And we have a closer relationship with Israel right now in terms of security than at any time in history.

I was reviewing the record the other day. We have intervened on Israel's behalf, in the last two years, more than several hundred -- a couple of hundred times in over 75 different fora in order to protect Israel.

I talk to the prime minister regularly, including yesterday. We are not -- you know, we don't want to see this turned into some great political football.

Obviously, it was odd, if not unique, that we learned of it from the speaker of the House and that an administration was not included in this process.

But the administration is not seeking to politicize this.

We want to recognize the main goal here is to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. And on that, Israel and the United States agree.

And the testimony, in fact, to the efficiency with which we've been able to pursue that is the interim agreement that is in place today.

Israel is safer today because of the interim agreement that we created. The 20 percent enriched uranium has been reduced to 0. We have stopped the centrifuge production. We are inspecting inside of their facilities. We have stopped the Iran plutonium reactor in its tracks.

Israel is safer today and that is the standard that we will apply to any agreement going forward. It is to guarantee that we will know that Iran cannot develop a nuclear weapon under the procedure that we're putting in place.
