WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senators Jacky Rosen (D-NV) and James Lankford (R-OK) led a bipartisan group of colleagues from the Senate and House Abraham Accords Caucuses in a meeting with Israeli President Isaac Herzog following his address to a Joint Meeting of Congress. The meeting celebrated the 75th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel and the success of the Abraham Accords. Senator Rosen presented President Herzog with a framed copy of her Congressional Record remarks celebrating President Herzog’s visit and the Abraham Accords.
The meeting was attended by Senate Abraham Accords Caucus co-chairs Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Joni Ernst (R-IA); and House Caucus co-chairs Representatives Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Brad Schneider (D-IL), Ann Wagner (R-MO) and David Trone (D-MD).
“The founding of the State of Israel was nothing short of miraculous and a profound moment in history. For 75 years, the United States’ support for Israel has been – and will continue to be – steadfast, unwavering, and bipartisan,” said the members. “Today, we’re proud to come together across party lines to meet with President Herzog and reaffirm the unbreakable bond and friendship between our two nations. That includes our strong support for the Abraham Accords and the promise it holds for promoting security, peace, and prosperity in the Middle East. We are committed to building on the success of these historic agreements, helping encourage and deepen regional partnerships, and widening the circle of peace to new countries and for the benefit of all people of the region.”
