Graham Statement On Meeting With Israeli President Herzog

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement following a meeting with President of Israel Isaac Herzog in Jerusalem, Israel.

“I just had a very productive and frank meeting with President of Israel Isaac Herzog. The opportunity to bring about fundamental, positive change in the Middle East is real, and President Herzog is fully understanding.

“He has been a good friend for a long time and his leadership for the state of Israel is indispensable as the nation tries to work its way through domestic challenges.

“I’ve always found President Herzog to be deeply appreciative of the U.S.-Israel relationship. I informed him about the optimism that I have about changes in Saudi Arabia, and that the time to solidify a new relationship is now. I look forward to working with the Biden Administration and our allies in Israel to upgrade the relationship with Saudi Arabia in a win-win fashion.”
