Kerry: Netanyahu ‘Welcome To Speak’ In The U.S.

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday sought to downplay the growing diplomatic rift between the United States and Israel, telling ABC’s “This Week” that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “welcome to speak in the United States,” and that the U.S. has “a closer relationship with Israel right now in terms of security than at any time in history.”

Netanyahu is expected to preview his speech to Congress on Monday, when he is slated to speak before a friendly crowd at the annual meeting of AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
