Kelly Craft, the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, wasted no time showing her support for Israel at a U.N. Security Council debate.
“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,” she said.
Israel’s Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon congratulated Craft on her new position and said, “We welcome your presence here and look forward to your voice being heard on behalf of the American people.”
“The United States will have no better friend than the State of Israel. 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,” he added.
After his welcoming remarks to Craft, Danon addressed the danger that Iran poses to the world.
“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,” he said.
