This is a momentous time. @POTUS Trump is making history. We are deeply grateful and our people will be eternally grateful for his bold decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move the @usembassyjlm there tomorrow.…
You’re coming at a time when Israel is a rising power in the world, you know, in cyber, in IT, in water, in judo, in singing.

You know what we say: Those who didn’t want Jerusalem in the #Eurovision are going to get the Eurovision in Jerusalem.
Next year in Jerusalem!
President Trump’s decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem affirms a great and simple truth: Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for the past 3000 years. It’s been the capital of our state for the past 70 years. It will remain our capital for all time.
Thank you @POTUS Trump for your bold decision, thank you for making the alliance between Israel and the United States stronger than ever.

Now, you know how you recognize real leadership? It’s when others follow, and others are following in President Trump’s footsteps.
I thank Guatemala’s Foreign Minister, who is here, Sandra Jovel, who has joined us today. We will open your embassy 2 days from tomorrow. Thank you.
I thank the President of Paraguay and the incoming President of Paraguay, because they’ll open their embassy a few days after that.
I call on all countries to join the US in moving their embassies to Jerusalem. Move your embassies to Jerusalem because it’s the right thing to do. Move your embassies to Jerusalem because it advances peace, and that’s because you can’t base peace on a foundation of lies.
You base peace on the foundations of truth, and not only has Jerusalem been the capital of the Jewish people for millennia and capital of our state from its inception, the truth is that under any peace agreement you could possibly imagine, Jerusalem will remain Israel’s capital.
And to achieve peace, we have to do one other thing: We must confront the enemies of peace, and I thank President Trump for his decision to confront Iran rather than to appease it.
Pulling out of the nuclear deal means that the world’s greater sponsor of terrorism, greatest sponsor of terrorism, is no longer on a glide-path to attaining an arsenal of nuclear weapons. This is good for Israel, this is good for the region, it’s good for the world.
And this is what I’ve just discussed with the American delegation. I welcome Deputy Secretary Sullivan, Secretary Mnuchin, Jason Greenblatt, Ambassador David Friedman, who I mentioned before, and of course a special welcome to Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka.
I think the fact that you and Ivanka are here is a special, personal testament, but also a national and international statement. It is one that touches our hearts, and we are all delighted by your presence at any time, at any day, but especially on this day. Thank you.
We value all of your friendships, all of you for coming here on this historic occasion. Thank you for standing up with Israel. Thank you for standing up for the truth. Thank you for standing up for Jerusalem. Thank you for coming here from all over the world.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended the renaming ceremony for the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center.…
PM Netanyahu: Shimon aspired toward peace but he knew that true peace can be achieved only if our hands strongly grasp defensive weaponry. In the Middle East, and in many parts of the world, there is a simple truth: There is no place for the weak.
The weak crumble, are slaughtered and are erased from history while the strong, for good or for ill, survive. The strong are respected, and alliances are made with the strong, and in the end peace is made with the strong.

WATCH: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's remarks at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting (English captions available)

Full remarks >>…
I would like to commend the strong position expressed yesterday by @POTUS Trump and @SecPompeo against the aggression of the regime in Iran. Over the years, this regime has been spoiled by the major powers and it is good to see that the US is changing this unacceptable equation.
In this context, I must point out that our diplomatic and military cooperation with US is at an all-time high.

PM Netanyahu:
This week I will fly to Moscow for an important meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. We meet from time-to-time in order to ensure security coordination and, of course, to discuss regional developments.
At the meeting I will reiterate the two basic principles of Israel's policy: First, we will not tolerate the establishment of a military presence by Iran and its proxies anywhere in Syria – not close to the border and not far away from it.

PM Netanyahu: Israel fully supports @POTUS Trump’s bold decision today to reject the disastrous nuclear deal with the terrorist regime in Tehran.
Israel has opposed the nuclear deal from the start because we said that rather than blocking Iran’s path to a bomb, the deal actually paved Iran’s path to an entire arsenal of nuclear bombs, and this within a few years’ time.
The removal of sanctions under the deal has already produced disastrous results. The deal didn’t push war further away, it actually brought it closer. The deal didn’t reduce Iran’s aggression, it dramatically increased it, and we see this across the entire Middle East.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed conclusive proof of the secret nuclear weapons program that Iran has been hiding for years from the international community in its secret atomic archive.…
You may well know that Iran’s leaders repeatedly deny ever pursuing nuclear weapons. I’m here to tell you one thing: Iran lied. Big time.

After signing the nuclear deal in 2015, Iran intensified its efforts to hide its secret nuclear files.
Iran had a secret nuclear weapons program called Project Amad. We can now prove it was a comprehensive program to design, build and test nuclear weapons. We can also prove Iran is secretly storing Project Amad material to use at a time of its choice to develop nuclear weapons
