(JNS) U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield met with top Israeli officials this week, including Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

“Honored to see @IsraeliPM @NaftaliBennett again today in Jerusalem. We discussed our close cooperation at the @UN working to combat anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias, and our approach to shared regional threats,” she wrote on Twitter.

According to the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office, Bennett thanked Thomas-Greenfield for “representing a voice of decency and reason in an institution that I think we can both objectively say is pretty biased in terms of its treatment of Israel.

“You’ve always been standing up for us, you and the United States, throughout the years, standing on Israel’s side and serving as a voice of truth,” Bennett added.

Earlier, Thomas-Greenfield also met with Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and told him that “the United States will continue to encourage countries in the region to normalize relations and expand cooperation with Israel, including at the @UN.”

Lapid called Thomas-Greenfield a “true friend” who fights “shoulder to shoulder” with Israel at one of the most complex agencies in the international community.
